Dark Olive Green Worsted WWV 602


100% wool 61" wide

This is a fine light weight plain weave wool that is a durable summer wool. A very good weight for women's gowns, jackets, and petticoats, and men's jackets, waistcoats, coats and breeches. In The Pennsylvania Gazette of 1776, "Run away . . .  an Irish servant girl . . .  had on when she went away, a long old green worsted gown". As cited in Wives, Slaves, and Servant Girls. Green 80/3 linen thread is a shade lighter or you could use black 35/2 linen thread for hand sewing. The black silk quilters thread and buttonhole twist is the closest match.
