100% Wool, 61" Wide
This twill weave Norwich good has a hard tight finish rarely found in modern worsteds but characteristic of most 18th century worsteds. This will work well for women's riding habits, gowns, and petticoats, either men's or women's jackets, and men's waistcoats, coats and breeches. For example advertised in The Boston Gazette of 1783, "Ran away . . . a Negro Boy . . . Had on when he went off, a brown mix’d Homemade Cloth Jacket and Trowsers of the same." This is cited from personal communication with Mike Barbieri. Off white 35/2 linen thread will work well for hand sewing.
