Woolrich Fabric

Has anyone used any of their fabric for coats? I'm wondering if the reenactment fabric can be used only for blankets, or if it would be nice for a heavy winter coat. I really want a warm winter coat in a color, but would settle for the black pea coat fabric if I have to. This is the heaviest wool I've seen online!

... reenactment fabric ...

This is just a guess on my part, but based on the name, I would think that this fabric is primarily used for replicating the uniforms soldiers wore in the civil war. You could perhaps call them and ask.

Another source for thick wool fabric is Bemidji. They have 14 to 30 ounce fabrics, wool/nylon blends and wool only. I have not bought any fabric from them (I have bought wild rice from them; very good).

With a great wardrobe that's still in the flat-fabric stage.
