Bill - I was studying your pattern yesterday, and my mind started to wander, thinking of other variations to the pattern. Specifically, I'd like to tye some of these with orange thread.

Re: Felt paged wallet OK for all soft hackles?

This website sells pressed wool sheets: https://www.woolfeltcompany.co.uk/acata ... m-727.html

I do not have any experience buying from them. This is just the result of a quick Google search. There are likely other sources to be found.

Good luck. ;)
