Brown Cross Barred Stuff WWV 562

$25.00

100% wool, 61" wide

There are cuts in the salvage at both ends about 3/4" deep every 6" or so.

This worsted has a brown ground with indigo blue cross bars. In the 18th century this would have been a product of Norwich and was most often used for women's gowns but may be used for petticoats and jackets as well. 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. Unbleached 60/2 linen thread would work well for hand sewing this fabric.
