Light Brown Flannel WWV 604


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

Brown wool flannel was used as a lining and for men's jackets men's waistcoats. There is an extant Scottish shirt from the first decade of the 18th century made of brown wool recovered from a bog. Flannel was used for women's gowns, jackets and petticoats during the 17th and 18th centuries as well. 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. Unbleached 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.
