Remnant Navy Blue Broadcloth, WWB 750, 23″ Long


100% Wool, 24 oz, 60″ Wide

23″ long remnant.

This wool was intended for the New York City police department which has very strict quality standards. Every yard of this fabric has been stamped with chalk once inspected but it will easily brush out. 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.
