This wool (yarn) came from Harrisville Designs, down in NH is where they are I think. Since it is double woven, I figured $65 a yard for just the yarn. It's slow weaving to because every inch of the way you have to weave two layers that are also stitched together by the loom as you weave. ;)

I doubt those outdoors stores have the double weave. ;D  But they will charge $70 for just a heavy shirt of that material. I forgot how much a heavey jacket is.
Good job on the weaving.
I have my Father's heavy coat. Seem like everyone had one 40-50 years ago. It's well worn.

Yeah the ones my grandfather wore from back in the day were not heavy winter coats, they were vented in the back. He wore them when hunting in the fall, they were thinner material. He would wear something that light when cutting wood in the winter though or it would be way to hot with the manual methods of cutting wood. My uncle just wore a wool sweater over a shirt. If I was sitting up on an open loader truck or an open skidder, I would want more than a sweater at 0F or colder. $20 for man and horse a day in the 60's was a quick way to stay poor, and walking to work with the horse 5-10 miles each way. ;D

This was the heavy coat,no vent in the back. Has some sort of liner to it too,or did. Not much left of that. Kinda here in places and none in others. It's old. I have seen the ones with a vent.

Ah, it was a heavy one then. I never seen heavy ones. Mine is heavy though and also has the liner. The liner is more for ease of putting on and off, nothing goes through that wool. :D  The wool is 1800 yards to the pound and I figure 30000 yards of yarn for the 8 yards, took 5.5 yards to sew up the coat, close to 6 lbs of wool. :D I put 12 yards on the loom, but 48" wide @ 30 strings to the inch. But with take-up and loom waste from the weaving process you can only do about 8 yards of cloth. Especially if woven double, takes up more in the undulations of the weave.

What make of loom do you have. When we started in the sheep busness i took a weaving class was very interesting. Came to the conclusion it was pretty time consuming . But would be a great hobby on winter.

No particular brand, I made it. But it is a Swedish vertical countermarch type.

Well the Southern Storm just came through here. Trees on the roadway, trees on cars with occupants, shutters and metal blew off our house.
A lot of limbs to pick up and it looks like this will be Free Log week when the tree service people go to work.

We are getting the freezing rain. Ice building up on everything and 50 mph winds. Trees down and wide spread power outages. This weather is really holding up my progress.

Enough snow on the car this morning to want to sweep it off. It never did make on the road, though. Less at the garage 20 miles away. It's raining hard now. I got inside just in time

Rain (with freezing kind) has just begun, coming up from Oakfield , Maine. I Think it is still 29F though, but  ice mixed in it to. 3 jugs of gas and a full generator on stand-by. ;D

The freezing rain did not hit too bad here. The roads never iced up any, just some ice on the trees. I think it just rained by afternoon and in the night. Not a hard rain here so far, nothing just awhile ago. I don't think there is going to be more than cold showers for the rest of it. 33F is not a very warm rain, snow don't melt much in that, in fact didn't much last night. Snow looks just a deep as a day ago. just took another look and the rain is coming down at a good clip now. ;D

Around a foot of snow overall with some drifting 7 feet tall or more. Winds were blowing 50mph so it was nasty out. 20 foot waves crashing took care of much of the ice that had accumulated near the shore of the lake. Amazing how one day all you see is ice to the horizon, then the next day it can all be gone. Supposed to snow today and tomorrow then start to warm up. Hopefully this will be winters last blast.

Hard rain here right now, I was caught out in it. Was dry walking the first 2-1/2 miles, the last 2-1/2 was wet. But had a rain coat on at least. :D Temp up to 35F now, suppose to see 45F. Hmm, I doubt it. :D
