100% Linen, 5 oz, 54" Wide
This linen is a good weight for light summer waistcoats. It will also work for laboring women's gowns, jackets and petticoats. For example in The Norwich Packet of 1776, "Run-away . . . a Negro Man . . . Had on when he went away, a brown Linen Coat, with red Lapels, and Cape, and red Cuffs" as cited in personal communication with Mike Barbieri. Unbleached linen thread will blend well with this linen for hand sewing.
