100% Linen, 2 oz, 53" Wide
This is a bit of an unusual natural cinnamony brown with a hint of a pinky red color that would make a distinctive gown or waistcoat. For example in The Pennsylvania Mercury and Universal Advertiser of 1775, "Run away . . . an English woman . . . now a servant . . . had on, . . . [an] old patched reddish colour'd gown" as cited in Wives, Slaves, and Servant Girls. Unbleached 35/2 linen thread is the best match to this linen.
