90% Wool, 5% Nylon and 5% Cashmere
18 oz, 58" Wide
This wool coating could be used to make a man's coat, greatcoat, waistcoat, breeches or jacket. It could also be used for a woman's cloak (especially for a Welsh woman). For example shared from personal communication with Mike Barbieri The Connecticut Courant of 1777, "Deserted . . . of Capt. S[?]ayton’s company, and Col. Shepard’s regiment . . . had on when he went away a grey surtout coat, a very good sky coloured cloath coat under". Hand sewing in 50/3 pale blue linen thread is a good weight and color match. For sewing button holes try pale blue or grey silk quilter's thread depending on the look you'd like.
