Light Brown Check Camblettee WWV 264


52% wool/48% linen, 61" wide

Usually camblet or camblettee was a worsted silk blend but some were worsted linen blends like this one. This camblettee has a light natural brown ground with intersecting lines of medium brown and light brown. It is manufactured in England and is a steal at the price we're selling it for! In the 18th century this would have been a product of Norwich and was often used for women's gowns and petticoats but could possibly be used for women's jackets. For example in London's The Proceedings of the Old Bailey, of 1759 a witness observed "She had a very good brown camblet gown on" Unbleached 60/2 linen thread would work well for hand sewing this fabric.
