Mixed Dark Olive Drab Worsted Wool Stuff

Worsted “stuff”, such as this Mixed Dark Olive Drab Worsted Wool Stuff, referred to a variety of worsted textiles, originally produced in Norwich, then 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 as camlet, callimancoe and camlettines. Twilled worsteds were known as shalloon, durants, and lastings.

Drab is a dull light brown color. The word was first used in England in 1688, and originally referred to undyed homespun wool. It may have derived from the French word "drap" which referred to cloth, and was a general English term for wool.
