Thickish cotton for shorts

Post by Resse » Wed Sep 05, 2012 8:11 pm

I am after some thickish cotton for shorts for DS, for his school uniform. It has to be black or navy.

Has anyone seen any around?

I've made the boys long pants out of rugby knit and it's a great weight so will use it for summer shorts too - they love them as they are very comfy easy wear. If you want me to look at levana i can get you some navy or black if they have it.

went into Levana and they said I was lucky to have got rugby knit in the past ... they only have pieces from orders - they used to cut off 1 mt to send and kept one mt when some firm ordered a roll - now they cut half metre!

so sorry they don't have any. they don't even have any navy or black unbrushed sweatshirting which would have been ok too.
