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 1772 The Connecticut Courant it is advertised, "run away . . . an Apprentice . . . has with him . . . a light brown coating Surtout" 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 buff buttonhole twist.
