Dating from the Edwardian or early 1900's, an original unused brown pin stripe fabric for either a man's suit or lady's walking suit.  The fabric is a blend of cotton with wool or linen.  

Width of the brown between the narrow pin stripe is 3/8".   Yardage measures 4-1/2 yds long x 54" wide.  Label indicates it is from the Everett Mills, Lawrence, Mass. 

Although unused, there are flaws.  I am of the opinion, from age and possibly the way the fabric was stored.  Here is the problem:  along the selvage the material is shredded at the edge.  Another is where the fabric has been folded in half when placed on the cardboard wrap.  Along this folded edge the fabric has torn/shredded.  In other words, the same condition as at the selvage edge.  Even though this has occurred, in testing the fabric for strength, I find it is very sturdy a short distance in from the damage.  Plenty of fabric that would be much usable yardage for a sewing project, or crafts.
