Brown Cross Barr'd Stuff WWV 574


100% wool, 62" wide

This worsted has a brown ground with a richer brown cross bars bound on each side by light indigo blue. In the 18th century this would have been a product of Norwich and was most often used for women's gowns but may be used for petticoats and jackets as well. For example in The Connecticut Journal an ad in 1775 advertised "Josiah Burr, Has lately receiv’d an assortment of Goods proper for the season, which he will sell cheap for ready pay at this store in New-Haven, viz . . .  cross-barr’d stuffs" cited from personal communication with Mike Barbieri. Unbleached 60/2 linen thread would work well for hand sewing this fabric.
