100% Wool, 58" Wide
This brown worsted has a beautiful red overtone making it more raisin in color. Worsted with a light plain weave is good weight for women's gowns, and petticoats, either men's or women's jackets, and men's waistcoats, coats and breeches. For example advertised in The Pennsylvania Gazette of 1775, "Ran away . . . a servant girl . . . had on, and took with her . . . a brown worsted quilt"ed petticoat as cited in Wives, Slaves, and Servant Girls. Cinnamon 35/2 linen thread for hand sewing is just a shade lighter. For hand sewing buttonholes brown silk button hole twist or drab quilter's thread are the closest matches.
