Tow and Linen Check WLN 568


100% linen, 60" wide

This check linen is the counterpart to tow and linen stripe WLN 567 being identical but with a one inch unbleached stripe going along the weft making the check. Check linen was commonly made into men's shirts but may also be used for linings and occasionally for women's gowns (usually Negros), men's trousers or even bonnets. In personal communication with Mike Barbieri there is an ad published in the 1775 Providence Gazette, including "Run away . . . a Negro Boy . . . had on when he went away a Check Shirt and Trowsers." Off white or unbleached 35/2 linen thread will work well for hand sewing.
