Celadon Worsted Wool Stuff

Worsted “stuff”, such as this Celadon 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 by such names as camlet, callimancoe and camlettines. Twilled worsteds were known by such names as shalloon, durants, and lastings.

The pale jade color of celedon in this Celadon Worsted Wool Stuff was produced by China on greenware, and the name was said to be coined in the 17th century by collectors of the pottery. The term also appeared in France, named for the shepherd Celadon, who wore pale green ribbons in Honore’ d’Urfe’s French pastoral romance L’Astree’.
