100% Linen, 7.5 oz, 60″ Wide
Unbleached linen in the 18th century was usually referred to as brown although some may argue it is dyed. This 7 oz. linen has more body & is good for outer garments such as men’s trousers, coats & waistcoats. For example in The Virginia Gazette in 1773, “a Cooper, born in Ireland carried with him, a brown Linen Coat, Jacket and Trousers”. Brown 50/3 linen thread will blend with the color of this linen.
