100% Linen, 5 oz, 57" Wide
In The 1773 edition of the Encyclopedia Britannica it states that "green be the most frequent and most common of natural colors, yet there is no simple ingredient now used alone to dye green upon any material, sap green being the nearest, which is used by country people." However in 1772 a "Dr. William" petitioned the English house of commons claiming to have invented permanent yellow and green dyes for cotton and linen. Despite all of this “Michael Brown Silk-Dyer from London” set up shop in Philadelphia. In 1744, Mr. Brown advertised in the Pennsylvania Gazette that he would turn “Linnen and Cotton dyed blue, green, or yellow”. Green linen thread 50/3 is a bit of a richer green for hand sewing.
