I remember my mother making “reefer jackets” or “windjammers” out of this stuff in the sixties - my brothers had brown and fawn zip jackets while I had two - one was orange with fair isle patterns, and the other was lime green with fair isle. My favorite jackets when I was little!

It’s slightly rough feeling, but good for outerwear.
