As the Decades Progressed, Fewer and Fewer Occasions Called for Full Dress Which Had All But Disappeared by the End of the Century
During the 18th century, distinction was made between full dress worn at Court and for formal occasions, andundress or everyday, daytime clothes.
Full dress followed the styles of the French court, where rich silks and elaborate embroidery digitizing reigned.
Men continued to wear the coat, waistcoat andbreeches for both full dress and undress; these were now sometimes made of the same fabric and trim, signalling the birth of the three-piece suit.
The fleece is cut in one piece from the sheep.
This is then skirted to remove the soiled wool, and baled.
It is graded into long wool where the fibres can be up to 15 in, but anything over 2.5 inches is suitable for combing into worsteds.
Fibres less than that form short wool and are described as clothing or carding wool.
At the mill the wool is scoured in a detergent to remove grease (the yolk) and impurities.
This is done mechanically in the opening machine.
Vegetable matter can be removed chemically using sulphuric acid(carbonising).
Washing uses a solution of soap and sodium carbonate.
The wool is oiled before carding or combing.To avoid snags and pulls, remove any jewelry that may catch in the fabric’s weave, and wear clothing free of large buckles or other objects which may snag the textile.
Long hair should also be tied back to allow a clear view of the working area, even when the head is bent over the table.
When working with the embroidery digitizing textiles, it should be placed on a clean, flat surface which is larger than the textile itself, so that the whole piece is supported evenly.

Although it is supported, never place anything on top of the textile while it is in the flat position.
