100% Wool, 62" Wide
One yard and 9" long remnant.
This plain weave Norwich good is very fine and strong. This would likely be the best option for a Jesuit priest's habit if black flannel is too hot for you and this wont fade like linen. A very good weight for women's gowns, and petticoats, either men's or women's jackets, and men's waistcoats, coats and breeches. In New York's The Virginia Gazette of 1774, "Run away . . . a Negro Wench . . . two convict servant women . . . [one of them] had on, and took with her, a black stuff gown". As cited in Wives, Slaves, and Servant Girls. Both black 80/3 linen thread and black silk quilters thread and buttonhole twist will match this fabric for hand sewing.
