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.This check is similar to several we have studied in the Foundlings as well as sample books.  This linen is a medium weight and will work well for a sturdy work shirt, aprons, linings, children's clothing, 19th century everyday or work gowns, accessories and household needs.
