TYPE 962 COOK'S COAT
The Cook’s coat is double breasted and fully reversible, with asymmetrically placed copper buttons which can be done up all the way to the neck. Hand warmer pockets are cut into the facings when the coat is worn one way, and worn the other way large patch pockets are sewn onto the fronts. There is a slit in the centre back, and the armholes, cuffs, and hem are finished with cotton bias binding, which is visible when the coat is worn with patch pockets on the inside.
Cotton Molleton starts as the cotton canvas base Unfinished Cotton Molleton, but is heavily raised on carding rollers to create a very soft, felted surface similar to an extremely soft and dense moleskin. Molleton fabric is used industrially to cover the pads used in heat presses for the setting of fine worsted woollens and flannels.
The indigo version shows the process of raising particularly beautifully: as the fibres are lifted out of the cloth, the undyed core of the yarn is exposed leaving a subtle repeated pattern in the surface of the fabric.
