Mixed Drab Wool Beaver Cloth

In Montgomery (pp160), Bearskin is listed as "a coarse thick woolen cloth, with a shaggy nap manufactured for overcoats and very durable". Likewise "Beaver Cloth or Coating" is described as a stout woolen cloth with a raised finish resembling beaver fur. Examples of the Beaver cloth can be found in PL D-99 and 100 of Montgomery. This wool would make an excellent greatcoat or other outerwear.
