Ferrar Fenton (search for this): article 7
The proposed substitute for cotton. --The London Morning Star acknowledges the receipt of a sample of the new substitute for cotton invented by Mr. Ferrar Fenton, of Mapleton, England, and describes it as follows: It is, in appearance, about as much like cotton as sawdust is like wheat flour. It is in color rather brown than white. It is rough, hard, and brittle. Its fibres are thin but short. It has no soft down clothing and intertwining with its . It is, in fact, a woody rather than a woolly substance.--The process to which it has been subject has no doubt effected a considerable change. Neither rhea, nor hemp, nor jute, nor Chine, grass could have been made to yield such a material by any of the arts known to our chemists or manufacturers. Flax cannot be beaten into fine, nor steeped in any liquid with which acquainted until thus intermixed.
