"Mixt" in the 18th century for cloth suggested colors that were mixed together to create the cloth like the cantaloons in Montgomery's Textiles in America pp190, The mixed grays we found in a variety of different types of wool cloths through out the 18thc, including broadcloth, camlet, cassimere, and cantaloons.  Camlet according to Montgomery was "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) Our camlet is  of the coarse variety very similar to camlets we studied in the Hill book featured in Textiles in America.  Of medium weight it is well suited for winter gowns, petticoats, men's and women's jackets, bedgowns, wrapping gowns, breeches, coats, children's clothing, accessories and household needs.
