Suggested fabrics

Exterior:  I like to use vintage woolen blankets, but you can use any warm fabric such as wool, wool blends, corduroy or velvet.  Fleece and WindPro are also suitable fabrics.  You could also use quilting cottons for a spring weight vest.
Lining: Cotton, linen, flannel or other soft breathable fabric.
