100% linen, 62" wide
The slightly less than 1/8" (3 mm) stripe is formed by using slightly larger threads and varying the weave in the weft. Very similar fabrics were called dorea in the 18th century. This fabric is correct for 18th century lady's neck and pocket handkerchiefs and early 19th century gowns. When hand sewing try off white 35/2 linen thread.
