Coating Brown WWV 595


90% wool/10% cashmere, ~15 oz., 56" wide

This is a thinly woven, firm dark chocolate colored woolen with a good nap on both sides. This might be called a superfine although it is not as tight and firm. Brown broadcloths are very commonly described in the 18th and early 19th centuries. In The Connecticut Journal in 1775, "Runaway . . .  two indented Servant Men, one . . .  a weaver by trade . . .  had on a short brown coat, and brown breeches" cited in personal communication with Mike Barbieri. Brown 35/2 linen thread is a good match for hand sewing. For hand sewing button holes try the dark brown quilter's thread or buttonhole twist.
