Product Options

Yardage:
100% Worsted Wool 62 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 p 188)  Camlet is one of the many "stuffs" produced by Norwich and later York in the 18th century.  In the Richard Hill book (see Florence Montgomery) we found a selection of course striped camlets and in Norwich much finer ones.  This striped camlet would be considered fine. Suitable for both men and lady's garments, such as jackets, petticoats, gowns, waistcoats and children's wear.  Note that due to its weave, this textile can be used with either side as the fashion side, giving two distinctly different looks.
