White Linen Lawn
Linen cloth, like this White Linen Lawn, 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.
Lawn, such as this White Linen Lawn, was a delicate linen used for shirts, handkerchiefs, ruffles, aprons and caps. "Lawn closely resembles cambric but is thinner and finer" (Textiles in America by Montgomery pp 275).
