THIS ROCKS SO MUCH.  It is amazing.  I am in awe!  Not only is the felt beautiful (I love the colour) but the design and fit of the jacket is gorgeous.  Seriously... awe.

I adore the colours (notice the Canadian spelling Haha),and the jacket fits you beautifully. Where did you get the pattern? It truly compliments your colour choice and placement. You should be very proud, and should teach this technique! Wonderful!

ball park around 3/4 of a lb.

I had originally 1.25 lb of wool, and I made leg warmers, a berret and a pair of mitts, used every last scrap that was left over for this jacket, 1 lb would have been better, I really stretched it thin!!!!
