Extra Fine White Light Weight Linen - $20.00 yd.
Linen cloth was woven of flax fiber in many grades and weaves. Used in every aspect of living from clothing, to household needs, to the shroud made for the corpse, linen was so common that a tax was proposed as a source of easy revenue on the coarser sorts being imported into the US towards the end of the 18th century.
- This is a very fine, tight woven linen with over a 60 thread count and a very smooth hand. It is very similar to original bleached linens we have studied on shifts and in primary textile collections.
- It is very suitable for fine shifts & shirts, aprons, ruffs, sleeve ruffles, bosom ruffles, tuckers, cravats, handkerchiefs, caps and children’s wear.
- 100% Linen 58 inches wide.
