does anyone have any advice for a fabric that is warm and flowy? I need something that flows, that isn't stiff, but warm for alaska weather.

ideas?

Wool crepe, especially if it's a double crepe which is denser than single. I made myself a pants suit many years ago with wool crepe and it is one of the most flattering of fabrics. Lining is advised and helps with warmth. Mood fabrics carries wool crepe and often has some double crepe. It will make a gorgeous dress; a good choice for a little black dress or a fabulously flattering pair of pants. Wool flannel will also fit the bill and is a less dressy fabric.

Cashmere is really warm, but also really $$$.

In addition to the wool crepe Nancy mentioned, wool jersey has really nice flow and is good for tops when the crepe might not be right. Soft cotton flannels, maybe?

I just got some bamboo french terry in a fabric swap. Not sure how it would be for garments much bigger than a sweater as it is very heavy, but has a gorgeous drape. Hoping it will make a dressing gown for me. Maybe a caftan style.

100 weight microfleece is fab to wear and super warm but since it's fleece, it does breath and wick sweat from the skin!
