Prussian Blue Fine Broadcloth - $30.00 yd.



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. Indigo is a common color found in all shades in all types of wool. Prussian blue was worn by the Prussian army through out the 18th century and continued to be worn until World War I when it was replaced by the modern greenish gray of today.

  • It is well suited to women's and men's outerwear, coats, breeches, waistcoats, women's riding habits, and 19th century winter pelisses.
  • 100% Wool 60 inches wide.
