If I remember correctly from a book about the American Revolution, in colonial North America, the knee breech and hose was a specific mix. The breeches were very often deer hide leather, which is supple but not great when wet. The hose were woolen, which would stay warm even when wet from rubbing across dew in the grass, etc.
