Deep Pumpkin Striped Linen

Linen cloth, such as this Deep Pumpkin 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 on the coarser sorts being imported into the US towards the end of the 18th century.

Woven stripes were a common way of introducing pattern and color into textiles inexpensively. The looms were often warped with the stripes but the stripe could also be introduced in the weft yarns. The color could be introduced with a linen yarn, or in the case of many Manchester goods, in a cotton yarn. This orangish color could be gotten with copperas, a common dye stuff sold in the colonies.
