Excelsior Wool Knit Undershirt

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
Our wool knit shirt

The Federal army contracted for over 2 1/2 million knit shirts during the Civil War, and photographic evidence as well as artifacts still in existence show that these shirts were in frequent use during wartime and in civilian life beyond.  Our shirt is made from custom woven 100% wool knit and is made in the same fashion as an original example that belonged to a Federal soldier.  The shirt features cuffed sleeves and a 3 button placket.  The wool knit is finished and is not itchy or uncomfortable at all and is comfortable to wear next to the skin.  This shirt fills a void historically and functionally, as wool is an insulator whether dry or wet and these garments will help you stay safe and warm at those colder events throughout the year. Yes, they are not inexpensive - but we pulled out all the stops on this reproduction and custom wool knit cloth and correct construction isn't something easily done!  Don't miss your chance to own this garment that will last a lifetime!
