Apple Green Coarse Linen - $17.00 yd.
Linen cloth was woven of flax fiber in many grades and weaves and was 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.
Green linen seems to be a subject of much debate. There are references to green linen that could very well be unscoured, perhaps unbleached linen. However there are also dye receipts and dyers who will dye linen the "color green". In addition to the dye receipts and dyers advertisements there are accounts of self liberated individuals wearing green linen clothing. One of the popular shades of green in the long 18th century was a bright yellowish green such as this "apple green".
