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. Indigo appears frequently in the Foundling collection being resistant to fading in a hot wash.  We have found stripes such as these not only with the Foundlings, but in several Manchester books dating from the 1770's and early 80's.  This stripe is well suited to gowns, women's jackets, petticoats, bedgowns, waistcoats, linings and children's clothing
