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 worsted "stuffs" produced by Norwich and later York in the 18th century. It was came in endless colors as well as mixed and shot.  It was thin with a hard yard and a soft sheen.  In the Richard Hill book we found a selection of striped camlets of coarser quality most likely from York which were finer then their Norwich counterparts.  This wool would be similar.  Suitable for both men and ladies' garments, such as jackets, petticoats, gowns, waistcoats and children's wear.  

This fabric can be found in our "Worsted and Woolen Specialty" swatch packet.
