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. Indigo was a common color found in linen. It was colorfast and could take a hot wash making it a good color choice.
