100% Wool, 15 oz, 60″ Wide
This fabric is slightly lighter in weight and color than WWB 750. Navy blue was a very common color for wool throughout the 18th and 19th centuries. For example in The Virginia Gazette of 1774, “Run away . . . an Irish Servant Man . . . wears . . . a blue Broadcloth Coat”. For hand sewing, navy blue 35/2 linen thread would work very well. For sewing button holes try navy blue silk button hole twist or quilter’s thread.
