100% Irish Linen 60 inches wide

Tickings or “ticken” encompassed a group of twill woven linens.  It could be woven as a plain twill or herringbone weave.  Tickings were manufactured for bed ticks, fine to ordinary to coarse as well as ticking for “flock” beds.  They were used in tenting and for utilitarian garments such as aprons and gaiters.  Ticking was also woven for men’s breeches and waistcoats as well as linings for stays. Some tickings from Hamborough became preferred for ladies shoes and were expressed as being of “great detriment to the consumption of leather and the Lace Weaver’s Trade." We have found several examples of this stripe configuration in the London Foundling Hospital tokens as well as one from 1783 made in Hamborough.  This ticking is a good weight for trousers, breeches, waistcoats,  men's jackets, coarse petticoats and bedgowns, linings, children's clothing as well as utilitarian needs.
