Eggplant Superfine Broadcloth

In the 18th century, broadcloth, such as this Eggplant Superfine 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.

This deep eggplant color is in keeping with the various shades of purple we have studied.
