Grey Stripe Flannel WWV 569


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 1776 Pennsylvania Gazette, "Ran away . . .  a Dutch servant Woman . . .  had on, when she went away, a striped flannel jacket, patched with striped flannel of a darker colour, a petticoat of the same, striped with sheep’s black and yellow" 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.
