Light Blue Stuff with a faint hint of green, WWV 655

Original price was: $6.25.Current price is: $5.00.

100% Wool, 60″ Wide


This twill weave is very similar to WWV 650 but this blue has the faintest hint of green within the blue but not enough to call it a teal. This Norwich good is strong, durable and a good weight for women’s riding habits, gowns, and petticoats, either men’s or women’s jackets, and men’s waistcoats, coats & breeches. For example advertised in The Pennsylvania Gazette of 1775, “Run away . . .  an Irish servant girl . . .  had on, when she went off, a light blue stuff gown.” Because this is such a light blue, off white 60/2 linen thread for hand sewing and for buttonholes the off white quilter’s thread is the closest match.
