100% wool, 15-18 oz., 59" wide
Drab broadcloth was another common color used for men's coats, greatcoats, waistcoats, breeches, jackets and for women's cloaks. For example "RAN away . . . a Convict Boy . . . He had on and took away with him . . . a drab coloured Jacket and Breeches" advertised in The Virginia Gazette of 1767. Unbleached linen thread 35/2 for hand sewing matches this fabric best. For hand sewing button holes try the beigh quilter's thread or drab buttonhole twist.
