Black Check WLG 309


100% linen, 56" wide

This black is checked with a creamy white. Sometimes blue is died so dark it appears almost black in 18th and early 19th century checks. Black checks were sometimes used for men's shirts, although these may have been flannel, but may also be used for linings and occasionally for women's gowns (usually Negros) or men's trousers. For example in the 1776 Connecticut Courant, "RAN AWAY . . .  a Mustee Fellow . . .  had on . . .  a check Shirt Black and White" from personal communication with Mike Barbieri. Gray linen thread will work well for hand sewing.
