Light Blue Striped Linen

Linen cloth, such as this Light Blue Striped Linen, 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.

Woven stripes were a common way of introducing pattern and color into textiles inexpensively. The stripe could be introduced in the warp or weft yarns. The color could be introduced with a linen yarn, or in the case of many Manchester goods, in a cotton yarn.  We have found stripes such as these, not only with the Foundlings, but in several Manchester books dating from the 70s and early 80s.
