This plain weave grey wool has an alternating black and light grey stripe in both weft and warp. Check flannels were used for men's shirts and as a lining material throughout the 18th century but is very difficult to find today. In the 1773 Providene Gazette, "RUN away . . .  an Apprentice Boy . . .  had on . . .  a check Flannel Shirt" cited in Taylor and Sweet, Runaways, Deserters, and Notorious Villains From Rhode Island Newspapers Volume 2, 2001. Grey 35/2 linen thread will work well for hand sewing this fabric. For hand sewing buttonholes try either black or grey silk button hole twist or quilter's thread.
