Grey Cross Barred Stuff WWV 573

$20.00

100% wool, 62" wide

This light even grey has narrow lines of black, yellow and light grey intersecting to make the cross bars. This worsted is one of the lightest weight worsteds we stock having an airy hand. In the 18th century this would have been a product of Norwich and was most often used for women's gowns but may be used for petticoats and jackets as well. For example in The Boston Evening-Post an ad in 1771 advertised "Ran away . . .  a Dutch servant girl . . .  Had, and took with her, two short gowns, one callico, the other striped, a cross-barred" cited in Wives, Slaves, and Servant Girls. Grey 35/2 linen thread matches well for hand sewing this fabric.
