I showed had although it was not totally perfect, I think it passed the distance test.
I mentioned that I was working on making a tweed jacket out of this new cloth, and would show you the results alongside my own jacket made from the screen-used fabric.
Well, true to my word here are some shots to show the two side-by-side.
The next Donegal I have to make will be a chest 44 - so from one end of the scale to the other.
Overall I think the reweave compares well, with the visual read of the fabric very close to the original.
You can’t get around that they are there, but frankly compared to a lot of other cloths I have sourced, this is by far the least intrusive available.
It’s nice to be making this jacket again, as I haven’t made one for several years.
The cut is a classic lounge jacket shape, and the cloth is a joy to work with.
I hope to be making more in the future.
