Antique Mattress Ticking, Red/Beige Stripes. Early, heavy cotton twill mattress ticking made to hold a feather bed with one open end. Ticking measures about 62" wide x 75" long and is a continuous length folded over double. Made up of 32" widths stitched together with hand-overcast seams. A total of about 8 yards total available, if taken apart. I went ahead and washed the Ticking gently and line dried it. There are several tears, and some holes and coloring is uneven-please view pics. Clean and ready to use, there is lots of fabric here for projects or the large textile would be nice to use as a slipcover, table cloth, bed cover, etc. You are getting the whole ticking, not a "slice" or "piece", thanks and enjoy.
