6435- Cranberry Fine Broadcloth- $30.00 yd.

Product Options

100% Wool 63 inches wide

Similiar in color to our  6411 Cranberry Superfine Broadcloth, this wool is heavier in weight with a coarser weave. 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 uniforms, women's and men's outerwear, coats, breeches, waistcoats, women's riding habits, and19th century winter pelisses.
