Broadcloth Olive Green WWV 580


90% wool/10% cashmere, ~15 oz., 60" wide

This soft, thin wool broadcloth has a full nap on one side. The easiest green to dye are shades of olive. This would make a very nice man's coat, waistcoats, breeches or jacket. For example in The Providence Gazette of 1763 "Runaway . . .  an Apprentice Lad . . .  a Shoemaker by trade. Had on when he went away, a . . .  green Jacket" cited in Taylor, Runaways, Deserters, and Notorious Villains From Rhode Island Newspapers Volume 1, 2001. Green linen thread is just a shade lighter for hand sewing. For sewing button holes try light green silk quilter's thread which is quite a bit lighter in color or buff silk quilter's thread which will not match but also has an earthy color.
