Dark Mixt Black Wool Blend, WWV 616
90% Wool, 5% Nylon and 5% Cashmere
18 oz, 60″ Wide
This fabric is almost black but is mixed with very dark grey making it a dark charcoal color. Shared from personal communication with Mike Barbieri The Boston News-Letter of 1776 “RAN-away . . . a young Fellow . . . He carried away . . . one grey Coat and Jacket with Brass-Buttons”. Black 35/2 linen thread for hand sewing matches this fabric best and for hand sewing button holes try black silk quilter’s thread or button hole twist.
