100% Linen, 2 oz, 53" Wide
This ~2 oz. linen is some of the finest commercially produced today. It was used for neck and pocket handkerchiefs, caps, shift and sleeve ruffles for the ladies and for gentlemen's shirt ruffles, the body of stocks, and handkerchiefs. From personal communication with Mike Barbieri The Boston Gazette of 1775 an ad included "Will be Sold by Public Vendue, At Gouldâ€™s Auction-Office, In Back-Street, (near his former Office,) All the Stock in Trade of Mr. William Graves, deceased, Amongst which are . . . fine Irish Linens, and Sheeting Hollands." White linen thread 60/2 will work well for sewing on this fine linen. Even if machine sewing other parts of your clothing, people look most at your face so that hand sewing should at least be done around the caps and neck handkerchief. The picture shows a pair of sleeve buttons behind the linen to show how fine it is.
