Natural White Fine Broadcloth
In the 18th century, broadcloth, such as this Natural White Fine Broadcloth, 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.
