Say Cloth. A cloth now obsolete, but which at one time (two or three centuries ago) was a well known woolen serge, and one of the earliest productions of English and Irish looms. The manufacture flourished exceedingly from 1300 to 1700. After this period say cloth became merged in the common denomination of Cloth, until the name was revived and applied to a worsted material, which in 1800 was described as "a stout shalloon, twilled the same, and woven with a 4-leaf twill, but the warp and weft of say were heavier in order to make a stouter stuff, being made 42 inches wide and 42 yards long."
