6186 - Cream Medium Weight "Shalloon" - $18.00 yd

Product Options

100% English Wool 63 inches wide

Described by Montgomery as a “cheap twilled worsted” Shalloon’s were woven twilled on both sides with the threads visible.  They could be hot pressed (glazed) or not.  Surviving men’s wear often finds shalloon as the lining material.   Shalloon’s were woven in a variety of qualities.  We studied superfine shalloons in the Hill book as well as came across shalloons in our research with the Foundling Hospital textile tokens, surmising the possibility that these cheap stuffs found their way into clothing of the lower sorts. One shalloon in that collection was very close to ours.  Our shalloon has a good hard hand, much like the original worsteds did and is a medium heavy weight.  It would do well for men’s jackets, breeches, waistcoats,  riding habits, children’s clothing, linings and bed curtains as well as some interior applications
