Re: Source of Fabric

Thanks for the information.
An answer from one continent for a supplier on another continent for a contractor on yet a third continent -- amusing and amazing!    By way of clarification, I am trying to match the fabric used in an US Army officer's jacket from WWII -- the wool was supplied by a British manufacturer. 
Thanks again.

Dear Polly,
I'm not certain whether you are looking for a supplier of fabrics for military uniforms or the name of a British manufacturer of fabrics during WWII? The name of a military fabric supplier in Britain is Abimelech Hainsworth Spring Valley Mills Stanningley, Pudsey, West Yorkshire LS28 6DW, UK. www.abimelech.co.uk or email abimelech@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
 They might help you either way.

I am looking for a source for BRITISH-made wool that was used in US Army officer uniforms in  WWII (c. 1943-44).  The color is dark olive  green.
Do anyone have any suggestions?  Thanks.
