fabric Melton

Melton is traditionally a thick, firm and heavyweight fabric used primarily for coats and in collar linings. Its solid and wind-resistant surface is achieved in two steps: the fabric is first woven with wool in a tight twill or plain-weave structure, then given a smooth, felted finish, which completely conceals the weave. The name comes from the village of Melton Mowbray in central England, where the fabric originated as a material for hunting jackets.

Fabric Melton

Melton is traditionally a thick, firm and heavyweight fabric used primarily for coats and in collar linings. Its solid and wind-resistant surface is achieved in two steps: the fabric is first woven with wool in a tight twill or plain-weave structure, then given a smooth, felted finish, which completely conceals the weave.

The finishing itself involves creating a heavily compressed cloth where the fibres are tightly matted together, then raised and cropped to a uniform length. This results in a dense and non-directional nap with a dull, brushed appearance.

The name comes from the village of Melton Mowbray in central England, where the fabric originated as a material for hunting jackets. It has also been used for navy coats and uniforms.
