>Tickings or “ticken” encompassed a group of twill woven linens and could be woven as a plain twill or a herringbone weave.Tickings ranged from fine to ordinary to coarse and were manufactured for bed ticks, as well as ticking for “flock” beds. They were used for tent-making and for utilitarian garments such as aprons and gaiters. Ticking was also woven for men’s breeches and waistcoats as well as linings for stays. Some tickings from Hamborough became preferred for ladies shoes and were said to be of “great detriment to the consumption of leather and likewise...to the Lace Weaver’s Trade."?
