Kersey Brown WWN 194


100% wool, ~15 oz., 62" wide

This is a firm, twill, mixed chocolate colored woolen with a good nap on one side. Brown kerseys are very commonly described in the 18th and early 19th centuries. For example from personal communication with Mike Barbieri in The Newport Mercury in 1764 there were "ran-away . . .  three Servants, viz. . . .  both Irishmen, and [a man from] New-England . . .  They had on brown Kersey Jackets." Black 35/2 linen thread is the best match for hand sewing. For hand sewing button holes try the brown quilter's thread or dark brown buttonhole twist.
