Product Options

100% Wool 62 inches wide

"Kersey" was a cheap twilled and lightly fulled wool much in demand especially among lower classes for its ability to shed water, keep out the cold and wear well.  Noted to be used greatly in overcoats, uniforms and other utilitarian garments it was also used in home furnishings and draperies. "Mixt" suggested colors that were mixed together to create the cloth and was common in many different types of wool cloth including broadcloth, kersey, cassimere and sagathey (sagathee) such as these from our research  which are very close in color  to our kersey.  This medium weight wool is a beautiful varied blue mixed with gold & brown,  and has a nice drape.  It will work well for jackets for men and women, coats, cloaks, breeches, waistcoats, 19th century pelisses and spencers, children's wear and winter furnishings.
