Described by Montgomery as a “cheap twilled worsted” Shalloon’s were woven twilled on both sides with the threads visible.  They could be hot pressed (glazed) or not.  Surviving men’s wear often finds shalloon as the lining material.   Shalloon’s were woven in a variety of qualities.  We studied superfine shalloons in the Hill book and the color green in our shalloon is virtually identical to one in his pattern book from 1770. An earlier un-named Merchant waste book we studied also had a sample of the same color.  It was referred to only as “green” and consistently throughout the book was this color. We likewise came across shalloons in our research with the Foundling Hospital textile tokens, surmising the possibility that these cheap stuffs found their way into clothing of the lower sorts.  Our shalloon has a good hard hand, much like the original worsteds did. It would do well for men’s jackets, breeches, riding habits, children’s clothing, linings and bed curtains as well as some interior applications.
