Melton fabric is wool woven into a twill form. It’s thick, due to having been well fulled, which gives it a felt-like smooth surface. It is napped, very closely sheared, and is a very solid cloth in which the twill weave pattern is completely concealed due to the finishing processes. Because of its dense, quasi-felted texture it frays minimally or not at all. It’s hard wearing and wind and weather resistant, thus its main use for heavy outer garments such as coats and blankets. It was developed in the Leicestershire town of Melton Mowbray, from which it derives its name. In England not only is Melton used for the Scarlet Hunting Coat, an iconic symbol of the upper-class elite, but also for the “Donkey Jacket”, an iconic symbol of the working class. Both take advantage of the fabrics warm and weatherproof qualities.
