Bolts of Cloth

A Bolt of Cloth is used by tailors. They get various amounts of normal cloth and can convert it into a bolt, used in almost all tailoring recipes. Felcloth is a special cloth, however - two of them every four days at a moonwell can be turned into Mooncloth as opposed to a Bolt of Felcloth (non-existant).
