Greenberg and Hammer is the only place I've ever found lambswool interlining. It's lofty and perfect for adding warmth.
Does anyone have another source for it?

Nancy, if what you're looking for is that creamy, lofty, loosely-woven, pure wool that we used to use for sleeve heads and such back in the day, the only source I know of is Barons Fabrics. The last time I was in there, Mr. Baron still had some of it (pricey these days), even though no one out here knows what it is or how you use it.

Mr. Baron and his staff are tremendously nice and helpful. You could give them a call.

There's a series of posts about them closing here: http://sewing.patternreview.com/SewingDiscussions/topic/50130

Crain's NY Business has an article about the closing dated Sept 30th 2010: http://www.crainsnewyork.com/article/20100930/REAL_ESTATE/100939990

It's a huge loss.

Is this like felt or more like batting? Joann's, of all places, has wool batting by the yard, and I found a mill that makes wool batting in at least two weights.

Coco, you can see pictures of tailor's lambswool here, about a quarter of the way down the page. It's the soft, thin but fluffy white stuff Els used inside the collar and under the sleeve lining.

This kind of lambswool used be to a staple for hand-tailoring, but is almost impossible to find nowadays.

Thanks Elona, that's the stuff. Greenberg and Hammer declared chapter 7 bankruptcy which is final. I have been shopping there for many years. They used to be up on 57th Street just down the street form Paron when I first started shopping there.

Rats! Don't you hate it when a great source (of anything) folds?

When I first found my lambswool at Baron's, Mr. Baron (who is not a kid) came over and sort of holding his breath asked if I knew what I was buying.

Ah, thank you! That's nothing like what I was thinking- it almost looks like a beginner's hand knitted sweater.

I wanted a closer, clearer picture, so I just went through 20 pages of Google Images, only to find a really good one on Peter's blog. He apparently found some at Steinlauf and Stoller in August.

Yes, that is what it looks like: similar to a thinnish, fluffy yarn knitted up on big needles. It is wonderful stuff. You can get such a pretty sleeve head with it, for example, because since it is wool, it will mold to shape with a little steam. Not at all a polyester number.
