90% wool, 5% cashmere, 5% nylon, ~17 oz., 59" wide
This is a soft woolen with a full nap. Brown broadcloths are very commonly described in the 18th and early 19th centuries. In the 1775 The Connecticut Journal it is advertised, "Run away . . . an apprentice lad . . . had on and took with him a . . . brown broadcloth jacket, homespun ditto with sleeves" by personal communication with Mike Barbieri. Cinnamon brown 35/2 linen thread will be the best match for hand sewing. For hand sewing button holes try the brown buttonhole twist.
