Product Options

85% Wool 15% Nylon 64 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 is a medium grade with a tight weave, lightly brushed and a good hard hand. It is well suited to women's and men's outerwear, coats, breeches, waistcoats, women's riding habits, and 19th century winter pelisses. The color, Grass Green, is often associated with use in military uniforms and is documented in the mid 18thc French publication Memoires de teinture by an unknown author.
