Fabric and notions for making your own jacket inserts

The criteria I used for inclusion in this list was the availability of good quality two-way stretch fleece fabric, three-layer Gore-tex ® (even though it may be cryptically described at the insistence of W.L. Gore and Associates) and/or separating Uretek zippers. Despite my best efforts, I am sure that I am missing other similar retailers. Those offering at least two of these three products should e-mail me and I will be happy to update the list.
