100% wool 61" wide
This is a fine light weight twill wool that is a durable summer wool. A very good weight for women's gowns, jackets, and petticoats, and men's jackets, waistcoats, coats and breeches. In The Pennsylvania Gazette of 1776, "Run away . . . two Irish servants, viz. . . . the man . . . had on and took with them a brown worsted coat and jacket of the same". As cited in Wenches, Wives and Servant Girls. Brown 50/3 linen thread is a shade lighter or you could use black 35/2 linen thread for hand sewing. The brown silk quilters thread and buttonhole twist are a pretty good match.
