80% wool 10% cashmere 10% nylon
~16 oz., 61" wide
This wool is wonderfully soft with a full nap on one side. This would make a very nice man's coat, jacket, breeches or greatcoat or woman's cloak. For example in The New-Hampshire Gazette of 1775, "Deserted from the Brig Unity . . . a Sailor . . . had on when he went away a short red Jacket" by personal communication with Mike Barbieri. Red 35/2 linen thread and both 1/2" and 7/8" worsted wool tape matches this fabric. For sewing button holes try scarlet silk button hole twist or quilter's thread.
