Brown Worsted WWV 577

$25.00

100% wool, 62" wide

This twill weave Norwich good has a hard tight finish rarely found in modern worsteds but characteristic of most 18th century worsteds. A very good weight for women's gowns, and petticoats, either men's or women's jackets, and men's waistcoats, coats and breeches. For example advertised in The Pennsylvania Gazette of 1776, "Run away . . .  June, 1776, an Irish servant woman . . .  had on, when she went away, a dark brown worsted petticoat" as cited in Wives, Slaves, and Servant Girls. Brown 35/2 linen thread for hand sewing is just a shade lighter. For hand sewing buttonholes dark brown silk button hole twist or quilter's thread is a good match.
