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.

The word "turquoise" as a color appears in the Journal of Natural Philosophy, May 1806.  "100 lbs of linen will scoured, require 6 1/4 lbs. of indigo, to dye it of a turquoise blue."
