I wanted to ask if any practioners who wore robes for ceremonies or any monastics on the forum could tell me if haiqing robes/kasayas (or 'man yi) were available in any other materials than polyester/man made substances and if so - where I could order them. The only ones I've been able to find locally are made of 100% polyester...a little too toasty for my liking

The version I have seen felt very thin and cool. Priced around US$40 if I recall correctly. Just search for 'buddhist robes'.
Apologies if this breaks the TOS (I didn't think suggesting a search route classed as advertising, and I have no connection with any sellers on ebay or anywhere else), if it does then a Mod can delete please.
