Grey Check WLN 693


100% Linen, ~4 oz., 54" Wide

Usually period check linens have very narrow stripes of color. This linen could be used for household linens or a lining. Sometimes women's petticoats, jackets, and gowns were made of check linen. A man's waistcoats. For example advertised in The Virginia Gazette of 1770 "Run away . . .  a servant woman . . .  she had on an old check bedgown" as cited in Wives, Slaves, and Servant Girls. Off white 60/2 linen thread for hand sewing would work well for this material.
