Product Options

Yardage:
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 worsted "stuffs" produced by Norwich and later York in the 18th century. It came in endless colors as well as mixed and shot.  It was thin with a hard yard and a soft sheen. This wool is similar to a selection of striped camlets of coarser quality found in the Richard Hill book.  Suitable for men's, women's, and children's garments, such as jackets, petticoats, gowns, and waistcoats. 

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