Product Options

100% Worsted Wool  60 inches wide

Camlet "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)  Camlet is one of the many "stuffs" produced by Norwich and later York in the 18th century.  We have studied a range of qualities in camlets from Norwich as well as York and this would be along the lines of a superfine.  "Mix't" in the 18th century could be yarns dyed and then woven or in this case various yarn fibers spun together to create this mottled affect. This wool is very lightweight & suitable for both men and lady's garments, such as lightweight jackets, petticoats, gowns, waistcoats and children's wear.
