Product Options

100% Wool 64 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 slightly wider then 18thc broadcloth, is a medium grade with a tight weave,  and lightly brushed.  The drab color of this green is often seen in conjuction with a variety of drab colors offered for men's wear in sample books along with other types of wool fabric,  In processing this wool we discovered a small hole occuring a few inches in from the selvage every yard or so..  Because of this we can not sell this is first quality goods.  It is well suited to uniforms, Lady's and Men's outerwear, coats, breeches, waistcoats, 19thc winter pelisses, Lady's riding habits as well as any tailoring need.
