Product Options

50% Wool 50% Cotton 55 inches wide

A good quantity of "Virginia Cloth"  appears in runaway ads of Virginia throughout the 18th century.  Although it may denote a country made cloth, certainly in Virginia it is being made as described by Reverend Burnaby in his travels in Virginia in 1759. The inhabitants "make a kind of cotton-cloth, with which they clothe themselves in common, and call it after the name of their country" (pp 12-13).  Most certainly Virginia cloth contained cotton but often seems to have contained wool or flax as well.  It was woven plain, twilled, piece dyed, woven of two or more colors to create a  heathered, checked or striped appearance in all manner of qualities.  Our cloth is lightweight and finely woven making it suitable for gowns, jackets, petticoats, men's jackets, accessories, linings and children's clothing. This fabric has small spots here and there that can be seen up close but are not noticeable from a distance.  Please see additional photo for more clarification.  Originally $12.00 yd. and now $10.00 yd.
