22oz Melton Fabrics
Melton cloth is made of wool and is woven in a twill form. It is thick, due to having been well fulled, which gives it a felt-like smooth surface. It is napped and very closely sheared. It is a very solid cloth in which the twill weave pattern is completely concealed due to the finishing processes. This is our most popular fabric across our sidesaddle habit range.
