6. yeah, I think that's where I keep hitting a roadblock.
but I don't want twill - I want the denim "jean" fabric, undyed (natural cotton color, whatever that turns out to be once it's woven into jean/denim). I don't understand enough about fabric, I guess, to understand what I'm asking for. Since you're a knitter -- do you know of any websites where I might do a little reading?

Bah. Guess I'll just have to investigate more... thank you for your input, though, I really appreciate it.
