This worsted has a claret colored ground with a series of 6 thin cross bars that are 1 1/2" apart. In the 18th century this would have been a product of Norwich and was most often used for women's gowns and petticoats but could possibly be used for women's jackets. For example in The Boston Evening-Post an ad in 1771 advertised "Ran away . . .  a Dutch servant girl . . .  Had, and took with her, two short gowns, one callico, the other striped, a cross-barred" cited in Wives, Slaves, and Servant Girls. Claret colored 80/3 linen thread would work well for hand sewing this fabric.
