Part of the ‘Antique Fabrics‘ series, this fabric isn’t necessarily extinct, but it was more popular in the past than the present.

AKA drugget.

A coarse, economical wool fabric (sometimes wool-silk or wool-linen). It was used for coats, breeches and waistcoats.

Today it is still a coarse fabric, but with a cotton warp and wool weft, used for rugs and tablecloths.

UPDATE: I found a site for re-enactors which sells drugget appropriate for historical costuming. Yay!
