From Dwarf Fortress Wiki
The Clothier's shop is a workshop used by a Clothier to make clothes, ropes and bags out of cloth and silk. It can also be used to sew images onto finished goods. Cloth and silk must be either bought from caravans or weaved at a loom.
- Cloth is represented internally in terms of size, while the stocks screen lists each cloth as a single unit. As such, if an announcement comes up saying a clothier's shop job was cancelled for lacking 10000 or so cloth, don't think you need a stack of Pig tail cloth  in order to continue making clothes. It just means you are out of cloth, and need to weave more.
