 100% Irish Linen 60 inches wide - 

The term “checked” in the 18th century referred to any number of patterns woven or printed that intersected at right angles.  Checked linens were used for a variety of purposes such as aprons, shirts, children’s clothing, trousers and linings as well as many household items such as toweling, bed hangings and chair coverings.  Runaway descriptions and other contemporary writings occasionally call out other garments such as a "cross bar gown" or check shortgown or jacket. Colors range and along with a large quantity of indigo, we have found sad colors such as this drab in sample books and extant garments. The weight of this linen makes it suitable for men’s shirts, aprons, children’s clothing, linings and utilitarian needs.
