Cavalry Twill Shirting


Product Description

Made in the UK from start to finish.

Traditionally, fabrics with a cavalry twill weave were made with wool and used for hard wearing clothes, such as riding pants for cavalry uniforms.  The twill weave creates a characteristic diagonal pattern that allows the yarns to move more freely, making the fabric softer and more pliable. Cavalry twill fabrics are renowned for their exceptional handle and drape.

Our cavalry twill fabric is part of the Tower Mill range of shirting that’s made using luxury 2-ply 100s yarn, which is spun from extra-long-staple Californian Pima cotton at our mill in Manchester. It’s woven locally to produce a supple, super-soft fabric.
