Product Options

100% Wool  61 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 not as tightly woven or finished as a finer grade and has a soft  hand and drapey quality.  It would be suited to  cloaks, coats, breeches, waistcoats, Lady's riding habits,  heavy petticoats, children's clothing, 19thc winter pelisses as well as other tailoring needs.
