That Wearever fabric sounds wonderful for versatility, durability
Janis, thanks for the info on the weight factor of the fabric... very
helpful. I'll sure be looking for some and asking the weight
now that I know the parameters.
If Emmaonesock checks in with this site, she'll hopefully stock more
of the 14 oz. post haste. It's sold out now but she has stocked it.http://www.emmaonesock.com/fabrics/rayonlycrajerseyfo.asp

Of course you can see the knit texture, and they don't have that smooth
RPL surface, but I've had a pair of Liz Claiborne cotton knit slacks that just
won't wear out, and they have surprisingly great drape. With the addition
of spandex, I know they'd recover better than just the pure cotton. These
need to be washed after a couple of wears for recovery, but they're great.
