Tickings or “ticken” encompassed a group of twill woven linens.  It could be woven as a plain twill or in most of the examples we have studied, 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, shoes and linings & covers for stays We also found ticking being used in other garments in our research with the Foundling Tokens .  One of our latest finds was a pair of  stays purported to have been owned by Flora McDonald with a date of 1770-80. Our ticking is suitable for stays, gowns, petticoats, jackets, summer trousers, children's clothing, linings, aprons and accessories, and other utilitarian needs.
