Wool: Worsted "Stuffs"

Pale Saxon Green Worsted Wool "Stuff" - $14.00 yd.



Worsted “stuff” was a term that referred to a wide variety of worsted textiles produced originally in Norwich and later in York. These lightweight goods were characterized by their tightly twisted yarn, fineness of weave and smooth finish. This made the wool well suited to Men’s and Ladies' garments. The grades of stuff varied from coarse to fine and could be plain or twill woven.  Saxon Green was created using the blue process for saxon blue then over-dyeing with fustic to create a bright and beautiful green something like our modern aqua.   We have studied both saxon blue & saxon green wool dye books from the 18th century.  This green closely resembles our extant examples.
