100% wool, ~15 oz., 56" wide
One yard and 31" long remnant.
This soft, thin wool broadcloth has a full nap on one side. The easiest green to dye are shades of olive and the best way to describe this is an unfaded 20th century US Army blanket. This would make a very nice man's coat, waistcoats, breeches or jacket. For example in The Providence Gazette of 1763 "Runaway . . . an Apprentice Lad . . . a Shoemaker by trade. Had on when he went away, a . . . green Jacket" cited in Taylor, Runaways, Deserters, and Notorious Villains From Rhode Island Newspapers Volume 1, 2001. Green linen thread is just a shade lighter for hand sewing. For sewing button holes try light green silk quilter's thread which is quite a bit lighter in color or buff silk quilter's thread which will not match but also has an earthy color.
