As woollen cloth is woven in different thicknesses the weight of 40 yards would vary according to that.

Tartan fabric for kilts could be as light as 10 oz per running yard of 54 inches width, up to 16 oz or even more. The 10 oz is normally only used for kilts used in competitions of Highland dancing where it will swing easily and enhance the movements of the dancers.

The 10 oz would weigh 25Lb, the 16 oz would be 40Lb plus the weight of what it was wound onto - usually it would be folded double with the right side of the cloth to the inside, and wound onto a flat board.

As wool can absorb water, modern standards require that the weight be given when at a particular moisture content. Do not carry bolts of woollen cloth in a rainstorm unless they are covered over, or they will become very much heavier. <G>
