Brown Flannel WWV 603

$25.00

90% wool, 5% cashmere, 5% nylon, 60" wide

Brown wool flannel was commonly used as a lining. Specifically in men's clothing brown flannel was used to make waistcoats and jackets. A brown wool flannel shirt was recovered from a bog in Scotland dated to the very early 18th century. Women's gowns, jackets and petticoats during the 17th and 18th centuries were also made of wool flannel. For example in The Pennsylvania Gazette of 1776, "Run away . . .  an indented servant girl . . .  a Scotch woman . . .  had on, and took with her, a short jacket and petticoat, of brown flannel" as cited in Wives, Slaves, and Servant Girls. Cinnamon brown linen thread will work well for hand sewing this wool. For sewing button holes try drab silk quilter's thread which is a shade lighter or brown silk buttonhole twist.
