"Siskin Green" Medium Weight Linen - $14.00 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 furnishings 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. The color "Siskin" green describes a very light yellow green and is named for the finch of that name. First described by name in 1798 in the Philoshophy of Mineralogy 1798 it was again described in the Werner’s Nomenclature of Colours 1814.
