Vintage Feedsack History

Normally I'll find vintage feedsacks that measure between 36 to about 39 inches wide (the stitches taken out and opened). But recently I found a collection of 10 vintage feedsacks that measure 25 inches to about 27 inches wide (stitches taken out and opened). Well now that's pretty cool and unusual. These ones must have held less than 100 pounds of feed, flour, or something else.

I'll post the photos tomorrow on Vintage Fabric Friday's Favorite find...try saying that 10 times fast, I dare you.

In the meantime, here's an interesting read on the history of feedsacks
