I am making my daughter a jacket for winters in TN. I have a very nice black wool - and a nice poly lining (I think, maybe its rayon, I can't remember right now). But I am not sure what to put between the two fabrics if anything. I am afraid that just the wool and lining will not be warm enough. I considered some med. weight flannel I have on hand, but am afraid that will be too hot or bulky. I also considered just some plain cotton to give a bit of added warmth, but not a lot of weight.

I was wondering what you all have found to work well in this situation?

Patti, I would use the flannel if you are looking for warmth. Could you purchase some inexpensive lightweight flannel (like what is sold in Wal-Mart or JoAnne's for kid's PJs) if you think the medium wt is too bulky?

I would test the interlining. The few times I tried it the interlining added to much bulk and I didn't like the finished jacket.
Wool has a lot of heat retaining properties all by its self.

fourkid, I really want to help you, but I have no experience with such things, living in a climate that is summer about 10 out of 12 months.

I do not even bother reading about such things since I'm not likely to ever need to know. Good luck.

(I did see some sherpa type woolly thing at palmer&pletsch's website that can be bought at a store in Portland, OR; however, I'm thinking the woolly sherpa is not supposed to be sandwiched between other fabrics, but is to be showcased.)

I'm not up on Tennesee winters..I think that is part of the South with no winter A consideration is , is it cold or windy? If wind is a factor, you might interline with a ripstop nylon. That would block the wind and the wool would add enough warmth. If you are anticipating temps in the 30F's or lower, I would go with the flannel. Make a sandwich with the three layers and see how it drapes, bulk added, etc. I've used flannel for interlining and had no problems although it wasn't a very fitted type of coat.

How thick is your wool? I've bought wools recommended for coats and thought that they were way too thin for that purpose without any interlining. I sew for temps in the 20's and sometimes the teens....

How thick is the wool? If it's like polarfleece thick, no interlining. (TN climate is similar to NC). If it is more of a suit jacket wait, then maybe...

This is an idea - I do think my flannel on hand and the wool would be too thick.

I am beginning to think along those lines, Ada. This pattern doesn't really mention wool - but it it is the jacket Dd really likes - and it needs to be warm. In looking at the review pictures, some of the ones in wool look a bit on the bulky side (part of that could be the fabric, but some of it could be construction as well.)

I love the Sherpa - but not for this season. Maybe for next season we will venture into the world of Sherpa.....

Hi Sandy,
Yes, the winter will be very similar to NC 0 though Hannah's school is in a little nook tucked onto the side of a mountain (well, a mountain by FL standards) so there is some wind and a lot of clouds throughout the winter.

This is a boucle wool. Though I do have a piece of tropical wool as well.
