Woven stripes were a common way of introducing pattern and color into textiles inexpensively. Sometimes the looms were warped with the stripes but likewise you found the stripe 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.    Indigo and white were quite common, but other colors as well as shades of brown or natural could be found as well.  Indigo, resistant to fading in a hot wash was a popular color choice with the Foundlings being dyed both in linen and in cotton..  We have found stripes such as these not only with the Foundlings, but in several Manchester books dating from the 70's and early 80's as well as in gown linings and various accessories such as pockets.  This stripe is well suited to gowns, lady's jackets, petticoats and waistcoats, linings, accessories and children's clothing.
