Worsted “stuff”, such as this Soft Saxon Green Lightweight Worsted Wool "Stuff", was a term that referred to 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. The grades of stuff varied from coarse to fine, and could be plain or twill woven.
The color featured in this Soft Saxon Green Lightweight Worsted Wool "Stuff" was created with a technique, wherein the prepared indigo was digested in oil of vitriol, which resulted in turning the process from vat dyeing to acid dyeing. The result was a faster dyeing time, and a vibrant color. This pale Saxon green closely resembles extant examples.
