Red Worsted WWV 259

$25.00

100% wool 62" wide

This twill weave Norwich good has a hard tight finish rarely found in modern worsteds but characteristic of most 18th century worsteds. This will work well for women's riding habits, gowns, and petticoats, either men's or women's jackets, and men's waistcoats, coats and breeches. For example advertised in The New York Journal of 1774, "absented from her master, a Scotch indented servant girl . . .  had on . . .  two red petticoats, one of which is fine serge" as cited in Wives, Slaves, and Servant Girls. Scarlet 35/2 linen thread will work well for hand sewing.
