These Acts of Parliament cover yarns and fabrics, from the growth of the raw fibers (wool, cotton, flax, linen, etc.) and their refinement, to the production (weaving, dying, printing, etc), and the export and import of the final product. Products such as lace, sailcloth, silk and cambric are also included.
