Broadcloth Olive Green WWV 581


90% wool/10% cashmere, ~15 oz., 56" wide

This soft, thin wool broadcloth has a full nap on one side. The easiest green to dye are shades of olive. This would make a very nice man's coat, waistcoats, breeches or jacket. For example in The Newport Mercury of 1764 "Ran away . . .  an Indented Servant Man . . .  a Blacksmith and Farrier by Trade . . .  had then on a green Jacket" as cited in personal communication with Mike Barbieri. Green linen thread is just a shade lighter for hand sewing. For sewing button holes try light green silk quilter's thread which is quite a bit lighter in color or buff silk quilter's thread which will not match but also has an earthy color.
