Sometimes the weavers bought up the flax thread and wove the cloth, selling it afterwards at a profit. These weavers or their wives could be seen at all the local fairs with great rolls of cloth, which they sold usually to shop-keepers or town inhabitants.
For measuring the cloth they used a piece of stick about 3' long which they called a bandle. The cloth was usually sold at 1s 4d or 1s 6d per yd.
