Product Options

55% Linen 45% Cotton 60 inches wide

The greater Manchester region of England was highly successful in its desire to compete with the growing popularity of the India cottons of the 18thc.  Using various combinations of linen and cotton yarns, they produced a wide array of textiles including checks, stripes, and solids to be left plain, dyed or printed to the latest fashion.  The quality of these goods ranged from the coarsest to the finest, which could today, fool the naked eye if not viewed thru a microscope.  In our personal research we have been fortunate enough to study a wide variety of these goods.  This is a lightweight and tightly woven textile suitable for Lady's gowns, petticoats, jackets, bedgowns and aprons, Men's waistcoats, jackets, linings, accessories as well as children's clothing.
