What is "Cloth Room" - Definition & Explanation

The place in the mill where goods are taken after weaving for inspection and repair. Examiners mark all defects, large or small with chalk; blemishes are also noted. If need be, brushing, shearing, grading, burling, specking, and mending are performed to correct the quality of the fabric. These are all dry finishing treatments. The fabric is now ready for the finishing room where all wet finishing treatments are performed.
