I know HMA ltd (Stuart Peachy) sell Frieze. It seems to be a very thick, hairy wool. Will dig out details when I get home.

"a napped wollen cloth, originally Irish. 'A coarse kind of cloth manufactured in Wales' " (the latter part of the quote from 1622)

so basically, coarse woollen cloth, with short pile - like moleskin or velvet.

Ta 2d, will that be the same as medieval frieze, per Celys? I ask because of the various name changes (for other cloth) through time, buckram and fustian for ex.

Would old wool blankets be close enough? They are usually available in charity shops and take dye relatively well. They are usually so old and well used these days that they have matted down nicely.

Stewart Peachy had rolls of frieze at the NLHF - several different weights and friezyness!
