after crepe twisting, not finer than 59 tex, each containing not
less than 21 folding turns per cm. The weft threads are of singles
cotton thread with a count not finer than 30 tex.
warp threads are arranged one twofold thread S-twist, two wool threads,
one twofold thread Z-twist, two wool threads, repeated, together
with twofold cotton binding threads at each cut edge.
The fabric is clean and reasonably free from weaving defects and
contains not more than traces of leaf residue, seed coat and other
