  • Materials: wool

Fabric details:

- 18 oz/yd or 11 oz/sq yd
- 100% wool
- 60 inches/152cm wide
- 2/2 twill
- Made in England

This 100% wool fabric has been specially commissioned by The Tudor Tailor from a Yorkshire mill and is currently available in seven colours. The weave is a 2/2 twill which has a good stretch across the bias, making it an excellent choice for bias cut hose. It also has a lovely drape and makes up beautifully for petticoats, kirtles, coats and gowns.

The range of colours is based on the mass of documentary evidence so far extracted from wills and inventories which will be published in our forth-coming book The Typical Tudor. Our findings make it clear that there were strong conventions in choices of colour for certain garments depending on one's gender and social status.

This listing is for woollen cloth in 'Sheep's Colour'. This is a 16th century term referring to the fact that the wool was undyed and was simply the natural colour of the sheep's wool, in this case white! Undyed white wool was typical wear for men's hose and working women's petticoats. It was also commonly bequeathed for gowns for the poor (men and women) by testators in wills of the early to mid sixteenth century. The photo showing garments made in this fabric are for illustration purposes only - no garments are included in this listing.

PLEASE NOTE, this fabric is sold by the half yard (46cm). To order the exact amount required simply select multiple quantities before adding it to your cart. For example, if you need 3 1/2 yards, select 7 in the 'quantity' box and we'll cut the 3 1/2 yards as one continuous length of cloth. The best indication of the true colour is shown in the photos which show all six colours together.

We also offer our woollen cloth in six additional colours. Please visit our Fabric section to see our complete range: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheTudorTailor?section_id=12946895&ref=shopsection_leftnav_8

For our customers in the US, we've been told US Customs and Border Control might charge an import duty of 7% on our woollen fabric. The charge is based on the value of the fabric (excluding shipping), and there may also be some small fees in addition. While we cannot guarantee the amount that will be charged, it's likely to be something along those lines.

*Please note - multiple yards of this fabric are heavy and adding it to your order if you are outside the UK will bump the postage up to potentially scary levels. Please don't be scared! If an order goes over 2kg we usually send it by courier and any savings made on the postage are always refunded to the customer. Please provide us with a contact telephone number in the notes field when you checkout. If you would like an accurate quote for postage on your total order please email ninya [!at] tudortailor.com

I have nothing but praises for the Tudor Tailor. Nice people, excellent research, amazingly fast delivery and oh yeah, they refunded me the difference on the shipping! What can't we find this quality of woolen here in the US?
