100% Wool, 60″ Wide


This twill weave 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 and 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.
