‘Duffles’ and ‘kersies’, usually green with a long nap, were types of woollen cloth used for coverings and linings that were much coarser than the Cashmere and Merino Wool we are renowned for today.

We began exporting these materials in 1813, with our first consignment heading to Nova Scotia, Canada, followed by the export of the same materials to Jamaica two years later.
