100% Wool, 61" Wide


This is a 1 yard 18" long remnant.

This is a fine, tightly woven, plain weave wool with a very small cord on one side and the weave visible on the other would be very good for a durable pair of breeches. There were a number of corded wools available in the 18th century, all of them are difficult to find today. In The Pennsylvania Gazette of 1772, "Run away . . .  A native Irish Servant Man . . .  had on and took with him . . .  a corded white jacket" as cited in Wives, Slaves, and Servant Girls. Unbleached linen thread is a bit lighter but will blend well for hand sewing. Buff silk button hole twist or quilter's thread is a bit lighter in color.
