90% wool, 5% cashmere, 5% nylon, 59" wide
This medium brown woolen has a full nap. Brown broadcloths are very commonly described in the 18th and early 19th centuries. This wool coating could be used to make a man's coat, greatcoat, waistcoat, breeches or jacket. It could also be used for a woman's cloak. For example from personal communication with Mike Barbieri in the 1772 Boston Evening Post an ad included, "Ran away . . . an indented Man Servant . . . had when he went away . . . one Suit of Brown Cloaths . . . carried with him . . . two old brown Jackets.". Brown linen threadwill be the best match for hand sewing. For hand sewing button holes try the brown quilter's thread or dark brown buttonhole twist.
