Broadcloth Green WWV 619

Green wool was relatively easy to dye whereas green took poorly and was unstable in linen resulting in a blotchy look that quickly faded. Green was a common color for wool throughout the 18th and 19th centuries. This wool coating 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 1764 Newport Mercury an ad included, "Ran away . . .  an Indented Servant Man . . .  had then on a green Jacket". Green linen thread matches this fabric well. For hand sewing button holes green quilter's thread or buttonhole twist.
