Cherry Red Fine Wool Broadcloth - $30.00 yd.


( / )


Broadcloth in the 18th century was woven on a wide loom measuring 54-63 inches. It 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.

  • This broadcloth is a medium grade with a tight weave, lightly brushed, with a good hard hand.
  • Broadcloth is well suited to uniforms, outerwear, coats, breeches, waistcoats, riding habits, 19thc winter pelisses, as well as any tailoring need.
