    Quotations
    • 1964: The better quality was used for ordinary cloths, and the worst was made up into coarse cloth known as cogware and Kendal cloth, three quarters of a yard broad, and worth from 40d. to 5s. the piece. The term cogware seems to have sprung from its being sold to cogmen, the crews of the ships called cogs; but whether for their own use, or for export is not quite clear. — L.F. Salzman, English Industries of the Middle Ages, p. 207.
  2. a coarse, narrow cloth, like frieze, used by the lower classes in the sixteenth century.
