Linen cloth 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. Sometimes the looms were warped with the stripes but many times the stripes were introduced in the weft yarns.  We have looked at a wide variety of linen as well as linen and cotton stripes in our research.  Referred to as a  "narrow stripe" in primary sources, we found this color scheme pumpkin (madder) and cream as well as weave pattern in all linen (usually printed), linen and cotton and linen and wool.  This all linen textile is a good facimile of a Manchester (linen & cotton) as the linen and cotton goods of England could be found to be as fine as the linens of Ireland.  This linen is well suited to gowns, jackets, bedgowns, petticoats, accessories, children's garments, l;inings as well as men's summer jackets and waistcoats.
