100% wool, 59" wide
This is a true green twill wool with little nap on either side but a bit tight to call a broadcloth. This woolen will make a nice man's coat, waistcoat, breeches, or jacket. For example taken from personal communication with Mike Barbieri in the The Connecticut Courant of 1775, "RAN-away . . . who has stolen several bags and other things . . . Had on when he went away a green or brown surtout coat, green double breasted jacket, green trowsers, and commonly wears a green cap.". Green linen thread is a good match for hand sewing. For sewing button holes try green silk buttonhole twist.
