100% Wool, 61" Wide
This is a 32" long remnant.
This plain weave Norwich good is light and airy for summer wear so will need some interfacing for body if making a jacket, waistcoat or riding habit. It also has a black thread in the warp giving it a subtle mixed effect. It is good weight for gowns, and petticoats, either men's or women's jackets, and men's waistcoats, coats and breeches. For example advertised in The Virginia Gazette of 1752, "RAN away . . . a Convict Servant . . . had been in the Army for several Years, with the Camp in Flanders, and at the Battle of Culloden, where she lost her Husband; she had on when she went away . . . an old dirty blue Stuff Gown, with check Linen Cuffs". Navy blue linen thread for hand sewing. For button holes navy blue silk button hole twist or quilter's thread should work well.
