This twill Norwich good is very fine and durable. A very good weight for women's riding habits, gowns, and petticoats, either men's or women's jackets, and men's waistcoats, coats and breeches. In The New York Journal of 1774, "absented from her master, a Scotch indented servant girl . . . had on . . . a blue worsted skirt". As cited in Wives, Slaves, and Servant Girls.
