Grenfell Cloth

Grenfell Cloth was a close-woven cotton twill material used to make outdoor clothing from its creation in 1923 until the late 20th century. It was named for Sir Wilfred Grenfell, a medical missionary in Newfoundland. He asked for a waterproof cloth to be woven to protect himself from the wet and cold weather he encountered in his travels.

The clothing was used in many expeditions.[1]

The cloth was made from 600 thread-per-inch Egyptian cotton by T.Haythornthwaite & Sons Ltd at Lodge Mill, Burnley, UK.
