Best Answer

Their clothes were made of the same materials as commoners, wool or linen, or animal skins, but usually of better quality; and usually colour dyed; possibly with sewn patterns. A few medieval Europeans were able to afford silks imported form the orient; silk clothing was very expensive and usually reserved for special occasions.
