Waste Cloths

Low-quality cotton fabrics made from hard twisted warp and waste weft in plain or twill weave. The warp is about 28's to 34's and weft from 8's to 1's or even coarser. Waste plains are plain weave. Waste twills or sheetings are the 2 & 2 weave. Waste cotton blankets are made in wide widths and coarse weft known as " Jumbo " cops are used, which are as large as can be accommodated in the shuttle. The cops are solid and the weft is unwound from the inside of the cop. There is no shuttle peg, but the inside walls of the shuttle are serrated to keep the cop in its place. (See Blankets)
