A new Fabric!!!

Our Newest 100% Wool!

It’s a strange ol’ loosely 100% wool for reenactors, online linens wools and cottons sale, costumiers and supplied - 18th c focusedwoven wool, accompanied with a fluffed up haze of soft wool! but its’ perfect for the under-breeches that we want to make copied from a pair in the Bankfield Museum in Halifax.


When we were first replicating and studying these under-breeches we never thought we’d actually find a fabric that replicated the original – lol we were mainly after the pattern and construction techniques! – but then we stumbled across this beaut. We’re tempted to call it our strange wool cloth but it’s going to be forever named ‘The Loosely Woven Wool’…what can we say; we’re not very original with our names!

It’s 54″ wide so nice and wide for most dressmaking and costume projects. It’d also be nice to an inner layer for something – possibly even a quilted petticoat…hmmmm…now that’s a thought 🙂


And here’s an image of the breeches we’re hoping to reproduce!

napoleonic underwear, what soldier wore in the 18th and 19th century, what kind of underwear did people wear in the 18th and 19th c, hadn made historical costume, replica and researched period costume, costumes based on museum

We know! Different colour but you can’t get everything in life! Also, we’d like to send the proper acknowledgement to the Bankfield Museum for allowing us to use this image 🙂
