Four yards long remnant.

This 19th century durable worsted has a dark grey ground with a complex series of first one then two brown cross bars in both directions. First appearing in the Proceedings of the Old Bailey in 1841, tweeds seem to have become popular in the mid 19th century for country sports wear and was used for men's outdoor clothing throughout Brittan. For example in London's The Proceedings of the Old Bailey in 1841 a bolt of "10 yards of woollen cloth, called tweed, value 10s." was stolen. Black 80/3 linen thread would work well for hand sewing this fabric.
