Where Does Duffle Fabric Come From?
The name Duffle derives from the town called Duffel in Belgium where the material originates. The British Royal Navy chose this material, because it was thick and made of wool, to make into coats. These became known as Duffle coats. However, it was World War I that made duffle coats and this fabric famous. During that time, a great number of camel coloured coats were made. Designed as a warm outer layer for the troops. Because of the large stocks of post-war military surplus coats, the Duffle coat was then sold to the general public in the 1950s and 1960s. Marking it as a practical, everyday, winter coat, that remains a classic up to today.
Colour Variations of Woollen Fabrics
This 80% merino wool fabric is a natural material and colour variation is evidence of the natural origin of the material. Therefore the product colour is only indicative, as it is not possible to assure consistency of colour in a natural product due to the natural colour of raw wool and absorption of dyes. Colour matching cannot be guaranteed on shipments and variation will be more pronounced beyond the normal commercial range.
