Mrs B has a little project on the go, and is looking for some polartec alpha insulation fabric.
Does anyone have a recommended source?

Thanks

No one got a source?

My Google-fu seems to find an Etsy shop in usa selling offcuts but nothing in uk.

It seems bizarre that we cant buy it in the uk.

However we have found a seamstress in USA who is hoing to sell us a small quantity.

Thanks for looking, i will post up how we get on.

They've been able to source some on trek lite, extrem textile maybe?

Alpha is excellent stuff Stu. Warm but massively breathable, I really rate it. I have quite a few Alpha items of clothing, gilets and jackets, shelled and 'raw'
