Mixed Indigo Worsted Wool Serge

Serge was a twilled cloth with a worsted warp and woolen weft, that was lighter than kersey and higher-quality. Many qualities were woven and used for a variety of applications ranging from bedding to linings and outer garments. One coarse "sarge" in the Foundling collection was used as a baby blanket, while finer Norwich serges were frequently made into men's suits.

"Mixt" in the 18th century for wool or worsted cloth suggested colors that were mixed together such as one colored warp and another weft. It could also be more then two colors. In broadcloths it could range from the variations in the natural wool to yarns spun together to literally floor sweepings that were recycled into yarn and woven. You find mixed color in worsteds such as camlets and cantaloons and in woolens in cassimeres, kerseys and broadcloths.
