100% Wool, 11.5 oz, 57" Wide
This flannel is what modern people would call charcoal grey. It's a wonderful dark mixed grey wool flannel and may be used as a lining and for women's gowns, jackets and petticoats and men's jackets during the 17th and 18th centuries. For example in The Boston Gazette of 1764, "Run-away from the Brig Freemason . . . a Sailor: Had on . . . a blue Jacket lin’d with white Flannel, a coarse Flannel Under Jacket ty’d before" as cited in personal communication with Mike Barbieri. Black linen thread will work well for hand sewing this wool. For sewing button holes try gray silk button hole twist or quilter's thread.
