1/2″ Red Worsted Wool Tape


Made in England

1/2″ (13 mm)


This width may be used for garters as red garters often are described and seen in artwork. This width is also great for the ties of cloaks but may be used as a trim around buttonholes and as an edging on civilian clothing. In 1752 “a white Servant Man” ran away as advertised in The Virginia Gazette. He “had on when he went away, a blue Cloth Coat and Breeches, faced, lined and trimmed with Red . . .  he’s an Englishman, and hath been in the Country about a Year; and pretends to be a Coachman”. Scarlet 35/2 linen thread will match this for hand sewing.
