100% Linen, 58" wide ~5 oz.
Although not very common, aprons and c. 1750s shirts are occasionally described as blue and some extant stays are made of blue linen. For example in London's The Proceedings of the Old Bailey, of 1789 "ROSE FLOOD was indicted for feloniously stealing . . . one blue linen apron, value 6 d." Blue 35/2 linen thread is the a bit darker to this linen but the closest match.
