How prevalent would the use of this color of kersey been during the war?

Are we talking about what is commonly referred to today as "blue gray kersey," "English Army cloth," etc.? If so, once again: http://www.cwreenactors.com/forum/showthread.php?t=18741. Grab a copy of Entrepot too while you're at it. And this is a worthwhile read as well: http://www.adolphusconfederateuniforms.com/uniform-blog.html
And aside from government-made garments in the ANV, ready made garments made of the cloth arrived as early as 1861, and both surviving uniforms and government records attest to the cloth seeing use in virtually every theater of the war. The extent to which depends on the specific time and place.

Mr. Feuchtenburger is refering to some fabric I'm selling on ebay... Its a dark very green - blue/gray kersey that Family Heirloom Weaver's made about or so 10 years.

I had to laugh when I saw this post. From my experience, all dark blue-gray kersey turns green! At least, where the sun hits it. :)
