Pink Stuff WWV 561


100% wool 61" wide

This is a very soft, fine and durable plain weave summer wool. Worsteds off all sorts were called Norwich goods and were sometimes used for men's breeches, waistcoats, jackets and coats, and frequently for women's gowns, petticoats, and jackets. For example The Proceedings of the Old Bailey includes a trial record in 1760 in which a boy and a woman "were indicted, the first for stealing two stuff gowns, value 4 s. and one stuff quilted petticoat, value 4 s . . .  I took a great deal of notice of the gown, it was a brown stuff gown, and the petticoat was a kind of a pink colour." Pink 80/3 linen thread is a bit lighter and more of a pink but may blend for hand sewing.
