100% wool, ~20 oz., 59" wide
This thick wool broadcloth has a full nap on both sides but one side has a soft smooth finish. The easiest green to dye are shades of olive but this has considerable grey in the dye. This would make an earthy man's coat, waistcoats, breeches, jacket or greatcoat. For example advertised in The Boston Post Boy of 1767 "Ran away . . . an Irish indented Servant . . . had on when he went away . . . a greyish colour’d thick Jacket". Black 35/2 linen thread is the best match for hand sewing. For sewing button holes try black silk quilter's thread or buttonhole twist.
