My first suggestion would be Fox Flannel. I don't know if they do, but it seems likely. I've sent off an e-mail asking as I'm interested in what colours they offer, I can let you know what they say or you can send an e-mail too of course.

(I enquired regarding both the Classic and Medium Weight flannels).

I'm guessing there's white flannel somewhere - for cricket!

Weave tightness varies. They don't really focus on suiting flannel specifically, just general wool flannel. Maybe an American can give you better information.

Fox posted some samples yesterday morning - once they arrive I'll scan them in and post them. Still, the fact that they sent some means they hopefully have some..

Fox Flannel has a spotted white flannel at 10oz. It is uber flimsy & delicate. But order a sample and you will see for yourself. The company itself was deplorable to deal with a few years ago
The LL Light Grey flannel was a worsted, at 11oz...but is sold out

Sorry for the delay, I guess it's down to Christmas post and stuff.

Anyway, here are the samples. I'll mention after each scan how accurate the colour is. I'd have taken photos instead of scanning but the light quality in winter here is so poor they'd be worse. If I get lucky and we have a bright day I'll update this with more accurate photos.


Type: CBT5 (Lambswool)
Weight: 370/400 (oz weight not listed, but if 760g is 25oz then 380 is 12.5oz, so this is 12-13 or so I would guess - if someone could clarify the oz weight that'd be nice).
Price: £25.

I darkened this one as much as I could, it's still off though - it's a slightly darker grey than this.

Posted Image
This one is quite accurate - in poor lighting it looks black, but in decent lighting it's clearly a very dark grey.


Type: FS692
Weight: Not mentioned in the stuff I received or on Fox's website. I have some accurate low-weight scales and compared the previous two samples (which are the exact same size) and they all came out at exactly the same, so I would guess it's the same weight.
Price: Again, not mentioned. I would guess it's the same price, as well. Obviously ask Fox first.

This one is pretty much perfect - a bit bright because it was scanned, but the colour is accurate.


Type: CWF5 (Lambswool)
Weight: 370/400
Price: £25.
Posted Image
The first two are perfect, as is the last one. The next to last one is almost a midnight blue - a little too much blue to be called that though. Samples 3, 4 and 5 are all a little too bright.


They feel nice and I'd love to make up a pair of trousers in the FS692. Great summer trousers.
There's a surcharge of 25% based on a 75m price for short lengths.


Also, Fox seem to offer a good range of weights. The lowest they have is "Super 120's Pure New Wool" 185/215, but they go up to "Brtish Wood" 970/1000.
