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, waistcoats or breeches or woman's cloak. For example in The Providence Gazette of 1771, "RUN away . . . an Apprentice Lad . . . had on a took with him . . . a red 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.
