100% Irish Linen 63 inches wide

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.  This wonderfully bright linen "plaid" reminded us of an earlier linen & cotton check that we studied from the London Foundlings dated 1760.  Although it had the same coloring, the brightness of the dyes and the pattern we found to be more in keeping with the 19th century. This is a Time Traveling fabric with a beautiful hand and a light weight.  It is well suited to gowns, skirts, tops and other fashion from the 1830's to present.
