My latest cold weather "outer" layer is actually made of 10 oz. cotton canvas from Empire Wool & Canvas Works. I have a full-zip version complete with coyote fur ruff! It hasn't been really cold enough this winter to pull it out, but I suspect that will change as winter deepens.

# 1,2 I made the first set over 3 years ago and only need to stitch for a thumb opening by hand
I wear out so many pairs of wool and wool blend sox, I always have some to use. They have worn well, and wash up without fraying
#3 Another set to be sewn
#4 And some made from a modified "Knotty" pattern
None of them have to be expensive, and re-purposing old socks makes sure I can have a pair in most every coat or car.
yep, me, too. Cagoule sez: Fleece Navidad!
