    It's called tackletwill, used for lettering on sports jerseys. There have several attempts to find retail outlets for the material, with no luck. If you do find one, please share the information! Good luck!

    Appreciate the thought, thanks but need more than three yards.
    A supplyer or manufacturer would be ideal

    Well, the problem is that you're a major sports-jersey manufacturer (think Adidas, Nike, Russell), you're not going to find a source willing to sell just a few yards. The minimum order for the bulk sale was FIFTY yards (@ $16 a yard).

    So unless you're willing to throw down a few hundred bucks, you're not going to find this stuff on the open market. Like I mentioned, a few of us have already tried the method you're attempting, with no success.

    I did'ent mean that in a "bad" way. I just meant that I'm sure you could definatly get some people together for a run, but there going to want to make sure they get there stuff. I did not mean to offend you if I did.

    No offense taken it pays to be careful these days. As for doing a run, Looks like a lot of work is involved and I'm not the world's most organised person

    Post a "Wanted to Buy" ad in the cargo hold. Exatra material may turn up as the vests get finished.
