I'm probably the last person in the world who purchased an Ultra-suede sports coat. ;)  I'm also probably the last to toss one! :D But it's nice material and I'm wondering if there is ANY use for Ultra-suede in the sheath making part of our craft?  (lining a sheath, insert in top layer, etc., etc.)  Any thoughts on the subject?

Probably not vegetable tanned and the oil or chrome used to tank the leather will attack the blade.  Or it might not even be leather and you could use it to line wood sheaths or scabbards.

Ultra-suede is not leather.........it's a man-made material.  Okay, so it might be good to line wood sheaths or scabbards.  Not to line leather sheaths?

Funny.  No tweed in my closet.  Don't even have any sweaters with thin elbows.   No, I'm thinking in terms of sheaths, but thanks for the suggestion.
