90% wool, 5% cashmere, 5% nylon, ~17 oz., 59" wide
This is a soft woolen with a full nap on one side and a good nap on the other. This is a hunter green similar to WWB 187 but thicker and softer. For example (thanks to the work of Mike Barbieri) advertised in The Boston Gazette of 1770 "RAN-away . . . an indented Servant Boy . . . He went away in Company with a short thick sett Fellow, who wore a green Coat and a green Jacket double breasted". Green linen thread matches this for hand sewing. For hand sewing buttonholes green buttonhole twist or quilter's thread matches well.
