Camblet was often woven with silk to improve the drape and softness making it a durable fabric often used throughout the 18th century for women's gowns, jackets, and petticoats, and men's jackets, waistcoats, coats and breeches. In the early 19th century this worsted could be used for a gowns, spencers and pelisse. In The Pennsylvania Evening Post of 1776, "Ran away . . .  an indented servant girl . . .  something of an Indian look . . .  She had on . . .  a brown camblet petticoat". As cited in Wives, Slaves, and Servant Girls. Light brown 80/3 linen thread is a good match as is cinnamon brown silk buttonhole twist.
