Product Options

Yardage:
100% Wool 58 inches wide

Woven on a broad loom measuring 54 to 63 inches, Broadcloth in the 18th century was distinguished by its stoutness, tightness of weave, and denseness of fulling which was sheared close to create a silky but firm hand. The tightness of the broadcloth allowed it to be cut raw and left without raveling unlike flannels and other spongy wools.  Broadcloth was finished in various qualities from coarse to superfine. This broadcloth is a medium grade with a tight weave, lightly brushed and a good hard hand,.  The scarlet color is directly matched to a scarlet superfine broadcloth found in the Richard Hill book as well as samples from Wiltshire. it is also very close to a Norwich scarlet which was especially vibrant. It is well suited to uniforms, Lady's and Men's outerwear, coats, breeches, waistcoats, Lady's riding habits, 19thc winter pelisses as well as any tailoring need.
