100% Wool, ~17 oz, 60" Wide
Mixed red is spun in the thread with red and white fiber resulting in an interesting color sometimes used in the 18th century for working class garments. This twill wool lacks a nap and could be used as a warm lining as well as an outer layer. As advertised in The Boston News-Letter of 1769 "RAN-away . . . a young Fellow . . . He carried away with him, two mixt all-wool Coats, red and blue and white, and one Jacket of the same, one of the Coats lin’d with green Shalloon, trim’d with Brass Buttons" from personal communication with Mike Barbieri. Scarlet red 35/2 linen thread will work well when hand sewing this wool and for sewing button holes you might try scarlet silk button hole twist or quilter's thread.
