Item details

Small stack of 3 pieces of early Pennsylvania Homespun Linen dating to the early to mid 19th C.

There are 3 small pieces in this stack. One, the plaid is truly a remnant, cut on all four sides, while the other two have been hemmed and probably used for either mats or napkins.

Descriptions as follows:

Photo #3: Balanced plain weave indigo and natural check homespun linen; 15 inches square; hand sewn rolled hem on all four sides; Condition, excellent with no rips, holes, tears or stains; Fabric is strong yet supple.

Photo # 4: Indigo and natural plaid; 31 1/2 by 9 1/2 inches; rough edge on all four sides indicating it was cut a long time ago; Condition, very good with no rips or tears, one small pin-head sized hole (not really worth mention but I'm doing so just the same); very pale age yellowing on one side - again this is a survivor, probably from a bed tick.

Photo # 5 Plain weave indigo and natural plaid; 19 1/2 by 18 1/2 inches; hand sewn rolled hem on 3 sides and selvage on remaining side; Condition, very good with some evidence of use - two pale gray spots (see photo)

This stack is a nice representation of three different weaving patterns from early Pennsylvania loom woven linen. Flax was grown by local farmers, spun into fiber and taken to the local weaver to be turned into cloth. Indigo fibers were dyed, usually by the indigo dyer. I'm really simplifying the process here, but just wanted to give the reader an idea of the work it took to produce such fine linen cloth as is listed here.
