A bolt is a unit of measurement used for fabric (and other material), typically stored in a roll. The amount of yardage on the bolt varies. From the manufacturer, it is generally around 30 to 100 yards, then the distributor will re-roll into 15 - 25 yards to sell to the retailer. The amount is generally printed on the end of the bolt. The width bolts can also vary, including 35–36”, 39”, 41”, 44–45”, 50”, 52–54", 58–60” and 66”, 72", 96", and 108"
