Eggplant Woven Stripe 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. Various shades of purple were popular from mid 18th century on into the 19th century and worn by all social classes.  This woven stripe pattern is one we have come across many times, most recently in the George Friedrick Timmich Dyeing Book c.1754-58.   We also found a dye receipt for a color almost identical in the same book.
