Kersey Mixt Colour'd WWV 589


100% wool, ~17 oz., 61" wide

This kersey is mixed with olive green, light brown and a shade of greenish blue. It was intended for military clothing but I'm not sure what unit or country. Mixed kerseys were commonly described in the 18th and early 19th centuries and could be used to make a man's coat, greatcoat, waistcoat, breeches or jacket. It could also be used for a woman's cloak. For example from personal communication with Mike Barbieri in The Boston Gazette of 1769 an ad described a thief who "stole two Homespun Coats, and two Jackets from Josiah Jennison of Lexington, one of a mixt Colour, and other a light blue." Grey linen thread will blend into this complex color well for hand sewing. For hand sewing button holes grey quilter's thread is likely the best match.
