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 a medium coarse grade with a tight weave, lightly brushed and a good hard hand,.  It is a heavier wool making it suitable for light blanketing as well. The off white color is a natural wool color making it suitable for historic reproductions. Please note this wool does have some dark flecking in it. This broadcloth is well suited to uniforms, Lady's and Men's outerwear, coats,winter breeches, winter waistcoats, Lady's riding habits, 19thc winter pelisses as well as any tailoring need.
