100% Linen, ~7 oz., 58" wide
This dark green has some blue overtones in it. In The 1773 edition of the Encyclopedia Britannica it states that "green be the most frequent and most common of natural colors, yet there is no simple ingredient now used alone to dye green upon any material, sap green being the nearest, which is used by country people." However in 1772 a "Dr. William" petitioned the English house of commons claiming to have invented permanent yellow and green dyes for cotton and linen. Medium green linen thread 50/3 is an almost perfect match for hand sewing.
