NC Depot jackets were produced by the State of North Carolina primarily for use by N.C. troops. Also issued to other troops. They typically have a six button front. Although there were many variations of jackets produced by North Carolina, the one piece sleeve jackets from the end of the war have become the hallmark of what is known as a N.C. Depot Jacket. This jacket copies the details of the original jacket worn by John B. McRae of the 36th N.C. Troops.
This jacket style features our logwood dyed woolen jean cloth. Vegetable dyed using a historical dye recipe and traditional dying methods. Fades to a tan "butternut" color. The included image gives an indication of the color this cloth turns after fading. The top portion of the image was kept from sun exposure while the bottom half was exposed to direct sunlight for 9 days. The top portion of the image has lost some of its original color due to heat exposure. We expect that this type of fading would be roughly equivalent to about 3 weeks of a soldier's life.
