It turns out I was wrong about what kind of fabric was used to line molds for brooch-making. Anita Malmius researched this issue, you can download her article here: http://www.archaeology.su.se/polopoly_fs/1.172821.1396250918!/menu/standard/file/LA9.Malmius.pdf

The long and short of it is that the evidence shows that wool was used to line brooch molds--NOT linen. Malmius concludes that this is because wool is more stretchy than linen and thus conforms to the mold's shape better.
