Mixed Dark Indigo Broadcloth

In the 18th century, broadcloth, such as this Mixed Dark Indigo 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 without unraveling, unlike flannels and other spongy wools.

Indigo, a common color found in wool and linen, created colors that ranged from pale to dark in shade.
