Product Options

100% Wool 63 Inches Wide

Mixed cloth suggested colors that were mixed together either by mixing yarns or in the case of medley in mixing fiber already dyed to create yarn.  This created a heathered effect of two or more colors and was common in many different types of wool cloth including worsteds such as camlets and pantaloons.  Cantaloons were a plain weave wool stuff often striped or mixed sometime with medley yarn.  Not as fine as camlet nor mixed with other fibers as camlets sometimes were, they were a plain stuff made chiefly by French refugees in the West of England. (Montogomery pp 190)  Our wool is medium weight and well suited to winter gowns, petticoats, men's and women's jackets, bedgowns, wrapping gowns, breeches, coats, children's clothing and accessories.
