They could be hot-pressed (glazed) or not. Advertisements mentioned broadcloths of various colors, with shalloons to match. Surviving men’s wear often has shalloon as the lining material. We have come across shalloons in our research with the Foundling Hospital textile tokens, surmising the possibility that these cheap stuffs found their way into clothing of the lower sorts as well.
