Navy Blue Overcoating Melton Cloth
Navy Blue Overcoating Melton cloth is a traditional cloth, made using 95% Merino wool and woven in a twill pattern. Melton cloth is typically thick with a felt-like smooth surface. This overcoating weight provides a durable heavyweight cloth for making traditionally styled coats and jackets. Unlike other twill weave cloth, the pattern is hidden, which arises from the finishing processes used. Because of its dense, quasi-felted texture, it frays minimally or not at all. Furthermore, the merino wool used in this fabric, means that it is both hardwearing, warm and soft.
Overcoating Melton cloth is a heavier weight fabric weighing 425gsm with a thickness of approximately 1.4mm. Being heritage grade makes this fabric suited to making re-enactment clothing and uniforms as well as period costume design. In contemporary design, this classic fabric adds a touch of class and elegance. We stock a wide range of heritage grade fabrics, grouping them in a separate section called True Heritage.
This 95% 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. The variation will be more pronounced beyond the normal commercial range.
