Madder red comes from a dye extracted from the root of a plant and was therefore much less expensive than red obtained form Cochineal. Because of this, madder was the red of choice for British enlisted soldiers and of the poor. Although red broadcloth could be used for any garment it seems to be common to find red waistcoats. For example in 1770 in The Virginia Gazette, "RUN away . . .  an English servant man . . .  a plaisterer by trade, and a very artful sensible fellow. He had on a . . .  red cloth waistcoat". Madder red 50/3 linen thread is an almost perfect match and for sewing button holes try madder red silk button hole twist.

Made in the USA.
