Brown Stripe Flannel WWV 568


100% wool, 58" wide

This dark brown wool has a quarter inch (6 mm) olive green stripe bound by light brown stripe on each side. Striped flannels were very commonly used as a lining material but also for men's waistcoats, jackets, and shirts and women's petticoats. It was also used for women's gowns and jackets. In the 1771 Pennsylvania Chronicle, "Ran away . . .  a Dutch servant girl . . .  Had, and took with her . . .  two striped flannel petticoats" as cited in Wives, Slaves, and Servant Girls. Black linen thread will work well for hand sewing this fabric. For hand sewing buttonholes try black silk button hole twist or quilter's thread.
