Indigo Blue Worsted WWV 576

$25.00

100% wool, 60" wide

This twill weave Norwich good has a hard tight finish rarely found in modern worsteds but characteristic of most 18th century worsteds. A very good weight for women's gowns, and petticoats, either men's or women's jackets, and men's waistcoats, coats and breeches. For example advertised in The Virginia Gazette of 1752, "RAN away . . .  a Convict Servant . . .  had been in the Army for several Years, with the Camp in Flanders, and at the Battle of Culloden, where she lost her Husband; she had on when she went away . . .  an old dirty blue Stuff Gown, with check Linen Cuffs". Try royal blue 50/3 linen thread for hand sewing. For hand sewing buttonholes navy blue silk button hole twist or quilter's thread is a bit darker.
