Grey Check Flannel WWV 565


100% wool, 59" wide

Check flannels were used for men's shirts and as a lining material throughout the 18th century but is very difficult to find today. In the 1774 Connecticut Courant, "Run away . . .  a servant boy . . .  has on when he went away . . .  a check flannel shirt" as cited in personal communication with Mike Barbieri. Grey 35/2 linen thread is a bit lighter and black 35/2 linen thread is too dark so either could work for hand sewing this fabric.
