In search of cricket gear

My last visit to the Local Op Shops was in search of a knitted cricket vest for hubby as we had a party to attend as Australian Icons. He has the moustache already so wanted to go as Dennis Lillie. I found only one, and it had been accidently shrunk. The op shop lady kindly gave it to us for free to try and stretch. We googled for info and soaked the vest in warm water with a variety of suggested additions, it stretched sideways slightly but not lengthwise. Never mind, I picked up some nice cream woollen fabric and also some black crepe. The wool fabric might be cut and bundled up for a spot of eucalyptus eco-dyeing in a jar-maybe also the cricket vest!
