Dark Indigo Linen, WLN 678


100% Linen, 5 oz, 54″ Wide

Blue linen was occasionally used for aprons (probably male owners of alehouses and like establishments) and c. 1750s men’s shirts. “Michael Brown Silk-Dyer from London” set up shop in Philadelphia. In 1744, Mr. Brown advertised in the Pennsylvania Gazette that he would turn “Linnen and Cotton dyed blue”. Navy blue linen thread will blend with the color of this linen.
