    Thanks for your patience and help.

    Thanks guys,
    I got a great deal on a roll of Climashield XP about 6 years ago and have made several quilts from it. My most used underquilt is a repurposed top quilt, essentially folded in half and stitched. Making all those quilts left me with a lot of scraps though, so last year I made a 7 channel underquilt. It went together pretty good, however the scraps tend to migrate so it's not the perfect UQ. I use it during winter camping trips.
    Happy Trails to one and all.

    Where did you purchase your Climashield? It seen as though OWF or Thru Hiker are the only 2 outlets for it. So to better understand, did you make channels as though you were making a down quilt and just stuff the channels with your scraps?

    I researched the company and wrote them about the project our BSA troop was doing. They put me in contact with their west coast supplier in Oakland and soon I had a whole roll of it in my garage. I opened the roll and the race was on! That stuff really lofts.

    The UQ I made was done like you described, but the channels look like there was a hefty bit of alcohol involved before the stitching started. I admit it, I am a guy and I don't mend straight.

    Western Woven is (or was) the name of the company. I don't think I saved the specifics including how to contact them, but it seems I was referred to them from the makers of Climashield as their west coast rep.

    Thanks, I'll research them and see if I can find out anything.

    They are a good company to work with. I think the company who makes Climashield was the deal maker but the folks at Western Woven were really helpful. Good luck with your quest.

    ebay?

    I would look for Climashield being sold on ebay or amazon. Twenty feet of Climashield might be a remnant to a contract manufacturer. If it is a thin version, you can just double it.
