Teal Linen, WLG 134


100% Linen, 6.5 oz, 60″ Wide

Some linens were described as “copperas coloured“. Copperas was used as both a dye and a mordant and there is considerable confusion as to what color copperas was. Nonetheless, this is one of the many possible shades of copperas. In 1796 “RUNAWAY . . .  an indented Apprentice . . .  He wore away a Copperas coloured Linen Jacket and Trowsers” was advertised in Rhode Island. Pale blue 50/3 linen thread is the closest match to this linen.
