Ok so I dont have a sample of that slate one, You could however get the slate one to see? It may be a bit dark. but their twills are a little more textured than the twill you have I think.......I have a feeling its like this one below. It has a little more sheen on it, if you see what i mean.

It may be a tad light, but its the same handle I think. its usually the same stuff at fabric-land.....they don't always have it in-store though.

I've also ordered the three dyes listed in that recipe. When material arrives I'll try the sock recipe and see what happens. Do you use hot or cold water?

follow the directions for normal all purpose rit, just use the sock recipe for the amounts of water dye etc. Remember to pre-wash the fabric first......if its a little bit i just do in the sink, right before i dye.

Both sample materials (the lightest one feels closest in material) and dyes have all arrived. Just need some time to experiment now.

Also I've started working on the strapping and attachment for the wrist greeblie. I've not started the straps yet. But it's starting to come together.
