So I am gearing up for winter and making some Hanna knock-offs. There are a couple of fabrics I have been searching for to no avail. Do any pf you know where I can find these:<br><br>
"ultrasoft" polyester microfiber, tis feels like a brushed cotton to me.<br><br>
Sherpa fleece 80% cotton/20% polyester<br><br>
Fleece Shearling 85% polyester/15% wool<br><br>
Are these real fabrics that I can buy or just strange Hanna Andersson creations for the company only?<br><br>
While I am at it, where can I buy Thinsulate?<br><br>
Thanks for your help.

Fleece Shearling 85% polyester/15% wool***I've heard of this, not sure where you could get it, I'd opt for either 100% polly fleece or maybe a wool? depending on what you want it for. If it's the look you want maybe a Berber 100%polly fleece option?***<br><br>

they have berber fleece (pollyester but looks like sheep?) . I've ordered from them before and lots of others have as well with good service. They also have nice wool if you wish to go that route.

try <a href="http://www.fabricline.com" target="_blank">fabric line</a><br><br>
I haven't used it, I got it from another board. It has a lot of outdoor fabrics..sounds like Thinsulate might fit into that category.<br><br><br>
Good luck...........
