Remnant Mixed Blue Wool, WWB 810, 13″ long


100% Wool, 17 oz, 60″ Wide


Mixed blue is the color of some modern cadet’s coats but was sometimes used in the 18th century for working class garments. As advertised in The Virginia Gazette of 1775 “RUN away . . .  two indented SERVANTS, one a Scotchman . . .  by Trade a Gardener . . .  had on, and took with him . . .  a mixed blue Cloth Coat and Jacket, lined and trimmed with black”. Medium blue 50/3 linen thread is a bit lighter than this wool but is the best match.
