Pale Saxon Green Worsted Wool Stuff

Worsted “stuff”, such as this Pale Saxon Green Worsted Wool Stuff, referred to a variety of worsted textiles, originally produced in Norwich, then 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. Plain woven worsteds were known as camlets, callimancoes, and camlettines. Twilled worsteds were known as shalloons, durants, and lastings.

This color 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 Worsted Wool Stuff closely resembles extant examples.
