80% wool, 10% cashmere, 10% nylon, ~16 oz., 59" wide
Wool with a full very soft nap on one side is well suited to a man's coat, jacket or breeches or woman's cloak. For example in The New-London Gazette of 1773, "Run away . . . two Negro Men, one . . . [wore a] red Broadcloth Waistcoat, crimson trim’d" by personal communication with Mike Barbieri. Claret linen thread and crimson quilter's thread both match this fabric well.
