Red Wool Blend, WWV 622

$28.95

85% Wool, and 15% Nylon

21 oz, 60" Wide


This wool has a hard dense finish and may serve as a substitute for more expensive wools used for British mock scarlet. It's a good substitute for 18th century British army serjeants and a very close match to c.1800-1802 serjeant's jacket of a British volunteer corps, and a pattern dyed for a US Army War of 1812 contract. It would make a very nice man's coat, jacket, breeches or greatcoat or woman's cloak. For example in The Newport Mercury of 1765, "By a Letter from Guilford, in Connecticut . . . we are informed, that on the 12th the Body of a Gentleman was found on Goose Island, and was buried the next Day: That he had on a . . . red Broad-cloth Jacket" by personal communication with Mike Barbieri. Red 35/2 linen thread and both 1/2" and 7/8" worsted wool tape matches this fabric. For sewing button holes try scarlet silk button hole twist or quilter's thread.
