90% wool, 5% cashmere, 5% nylon, ~17 oz., 59" wide
This is a soft woolen with a full nap on one side and a good nap on the other. Olive broadcloths are commonly described in the 18th and early 19th centuries. An example from London's Proceedings of the Old Bailey in 1784 the jury asked a witness was asked "What coloured coat had he on at that time? - I think it was an olive green." Light green linen thread is too light but is the best match for hand sewing. For hand sewing button holes green is too dark so buff buttonhole twist might be better.
