100% Italian Worsted Wool 60 inches wide 

The generic term “stuff” referred to a wide variety of worsted goods produced originally in Norwich and later in York. These goods were characterized by their tightly twisted yarn, fineness of weave and smooth finish making them desirable for Men’s as well as Ladies garments. The grades of stuff varied from coarse to fine and the weave could be plain or twilled. Worsted Wools as well as Worsted mixed with Woolens and Silks were popular goods for a variety of uses.  A variety of weaves and patterns were employed with a host of names such as "serge", "says" "shalloons" to market the subtle variations.  When a product grew "stale" it was given a new name to spur the consumer. Our Worsted is lightweight tightly woven plain weave, suitable for Gowns, Lady's Jackets, Riding Habits, Men's Coats, Lined Breeches, Linings and Children's Clothing
