Cloth is woven from thread. Silk is gathered as thread, but a Farmer's workshop is necessary to Process plant fiber and Spin yarn/hair into their thread forms.
Elves bring large amounts of rope reed cloth when they arrive for trading in the spring.
Cloth can be fashioned into clothing or bags at a Clothier's shop, or made into crafts at a craftsdwarf's workshop. Empty bags and quivers, cloth crafts and clothing can be decorated with cloth at a craftsdwarf's workshop.
Cloth can be dyed at a dyer's shop.
- Note: While other metals can be made into cloth, the same as Adamantine, the cloth cannot further be worked without new reactions.
