    One of my older cousins remembers her Mom saying “Now you make sure those feed sacks match !” as her Dad set off for the mill.

    • I really can’t get over that company doing this for customers! The designs were lovely, but I’m trying to imagine what the fabric felt like – was it thick? Soft? I assume it had to be somewhat strong material to hold the wheat. I just love this type of ‘neighborliness” story!

    The feed sacks were about the wight of a standard pillow case, and a bit smoother. Ok for dresses or blouses or shirts or skirts – not so much for undergarments. And after years of wearing feed sack garments some people – like my cousin – were heartily sick of them !
