6142 - Black Wool Broadcloth - $30.00 yd.

Product Options

100% Wool 60 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 stout in weight and of an ordinary quality.  It would be suitable for a variety of tailoring needs including outerwear.
