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 from personal communication with Mike Barbieri in The New-London Gazette of 1772, "Run away . . . [a] round favor’d, thick set [man] . . . Wore away . . . wine colour’d woollen breeches". Claret linen thread and claret quilter's thread both match this fabric.
