Product Options

100% Worsted Wool 62 inches wide

"Of plain weave,...woven in many widths, lengths, qualities and in all colors.  Some of goat's hair, some partly of silk, or linen and some entirely of wool; they are made for men's and women's clothing,  bed hangings, furniture, and church hangings." (Textiles in America, Montgomery pp 188)  Camlet is one of the many "stuffs" produced by Norwich and later York in the 18th century.  In the Richard Hill book (see Florence Montgomery) we found a selection of striped camlets of coarser quality then the ones we studied from Norwich.  This wool would be similar.  Suitable for both men and lady's garments, such as jackets, petticoats, gowns, waistcoats and children's wear.  Note that this textile due to it's weave can be used with either side as the fashion side, giving two distinctly different looks.
