Viyella is still among the best mills in production

A bit of history, In the 1900's Viyella cloth was 80% wool and 20% cotton and woven in the UK. Probably the finest cool-weather material ever produced. I still have one shirt from that era. I have two shirts of their newer material, one of their own brand and one of another brand but of Viyella cloth. I have had the other-branded shirt for over 10 years, and it is showing appropriate wear for age. The Viyella-branded one is stitched in Canada, but I am unsure where the fabric is now produced. The material and quality of the shirts still easily earn 4-stars, dropping 1 star only when compared to the original 80% wool cloth.
