90% Wool, 5% Cashmere and 5% Nylon
18 oz, 61" Wide
One yard and 12" long remnant.
Wool with a nice nap on one side but not too thick is well suited to a man's coat, jacket or breeches or woman's cloak. For example in The Newport Mercury of 1765, "By a Letter from Guilford, in Connecticut, dated the 14th Instant, we are informed, that on the 12th the Body of a Gentleman was found on Goose Island, and was buried the next Day: That he had on . . . red Broad-cloth Jacket" by personal communication with Mike Barbieri. Red linen thread and both 1/2" and 7/8" worsted wool tape is a similar red to this fabric. For sewing button holes try scarlet silk button hole twist or quilter's thread.
