100% Hemp 12 oz, 60" wide
Ticken is a twill weave linen tending to be finer than Russia drill. Ticken was usually striped but was white as well. Used for the same purposes as Russia drill but there are more references for ticken in England. Ticken was commonly used to make breeches, waistcoats, pillows, and bed ticks. Less commonly ticken was used to make trousers, jackets, coats, and women's pockets. The sailor's contract of 1706 called for ticken waistcoats and breeches. Hand sewing this project would work well using 35/2 white or off white linen thread. In The Virginia Gazette of 1737, "ran away from the Subscriber, Two Convict Servant Men. One is an Irish Man . . . professes himself a Gardener by Trade; and took with him . . . one pair of Ticken Breeches".
