Way out of my league and comfort zone on this one. Unsteadiness of hand made some of the selections rather jaggedy. But what the heck.

Yes, wool.

Wool was dyed with woad or indigo, which is not absorbed into the fabric but sits on it (that's why jeans fade); and would most likely have been very light blue. Indigo dyeing on wool is problematic unless you really know what you are doing and is a process that makes the wool scratchy. Aniline dyes had just been invented and weren't at all perfected during the Civil War. Color processes, therefore, weren't consistent between batches from one dyer, let alone a multitude of them. Any color from the light gray to light blue would have been acceptable.
