Product Options

 90% Wool 10% Nylon 65 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 firm hand. It's color is matched to a extant sample of "saxon green" wool dated 1771 we studied in a receipt book kept by a company in Stratford on Avon, England.  It is well suited to uniforms,((We found uniform wool of this very color dated 1790 in another collection!)  Lady's and Men's outerwear, coats, breeches, waistcoats, Lady's riding habits, 19thc winter pelisses as well as any tailoring need.
