Grey and Brown Cross Barr'd Stuff WWV 578

$19.99

100% wool, 60" wide

This worsted has a light grey ground with 8 light brown and one very light grey cross bars in a symmetrical pattern. In the 18th century this would have been a product of Norwich and was most often used for women's gowns but may be used for petticoats and jackets as well. For example in The South Carolina Gazette an ad in 1778 advertised "Run away . . .  a negro wench . . .  had on when she went away a cross-bar check [petti]coat" as cited in Wives, Slaves, and Servant Girls. Unbleached 60/2 linen thread would work well for hand sewing this fabric.
