Just to add to your knowledge base, there were traveling weavers who would move from town to town doing the weaving for these families. Having a home loom would have been a huge expense that most on the frontier could not afford. The families would do the spinning for a year, if they raised sheep or flax, and then bring their skeins to the weaver. He would create the cloth to their specifications and in return would take money or a portion of the skeins for his own weaving and selling of cloth.That would depend a lot on one's economic class and location. Colonial America was very much a consumer society, more so than a lot of folks into this "hobby" want to admit. But there were some folks as one got further into the lands of the western frontier that wore clothing mostly made at home by wives, daughters, maybe even sisters and mothers. They would still buy what they could when they could and it didn't take long for fabric and clothing to head west with traders and merchants.
