80% wool, 10% cashmere, 10% nylon ~16 oz., 59" wide
Wool with a very soft nap on one side but not too thick is well suited to a man's coat, jacket, waistcoat or breeches or woman's cloak. For example in The Newport Mercury of 1765, "By a Letter from Guilford, in Connecticut, dated the 14th Instant, we are informed, that on the 12th the Body of a Gentleman was found on Goose Island, and was buried the next Day: That he had on . . . red Broad-cloth Jacket" by personal communication with Mike Barbieri. Madder red linen thread matches this fabric. For sewing button holes try madder red silk button hole twist.
In the picture on the right is scarlet red to compare to this light madder red.
