Also known as ‘wincey’ or ‘stuff’, it is a thin, rough twill or plain hand woven fabric with a linen warp and a cotton or wool weft–producing a sturdy but coarse cloth more suitable to upholstery than clothing (though it was used for trousers and jackets). Used as a ground for needlepoint, for blankets, construction and patch working, it is considered a period fabric, often made in small quantities for historical re-enactments and the like.
