Black Broadcloth, WWB 849

$7.13

100% Wool, 18 oz, 60″ Wide

 

Black broadcloth was nice to wear before modern laundry since it does not show the dirt. This black coating has a full nap on both sides, is thick and still fairly tightly woven. An example from London’s Proceedings of the Old Bailey in 1732 includes “the Prosecutor came in, dress’d in a black Coat, a white Waistcoat, and black Breeches”. Black linen thread 35/2 for hand sewing matches this fabric best. For sewing button holes try black silk button hole twist or quilter’s thread.┬áThe black worsted wool tape is very close in color to this fabric. Matching tape is sometimes what is seen for ties of women’s cloaks.
