Black Worsted Wool "Lasting" - $20.00 yd.
"Lasting" or Everlasting was one of the many names given to worsted wool textiles known under the general name of "stuff". Lasting appears to have been a popular textile for men's clothing and ladies shoes in the 18th century and oftentimes dyed black. Plain lasting was woven with a double warp yarn in a 2/1 weave producing a pronounced twill. Lasting could also be called out as "flowered" or "figured" and also had specifice names for certain patterns quality by such names as Prunella and Amens. In plain lasting there are a number of Norwich books displaying various qualities mostly dyed black. There is one book in the Winterthur collection showing fine lastings of black, yellow, blue and light green.
