Black Coarse Wool Broadcloth- $30.00 yd.
In the 18th century, broadcloth was woven on a wide loom measuring 54-63 inches, and was finished in a variety of qualities, from coarse to superfine. 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.
