Origin of wire cloth
Examples from the Web for wire cloth
Windows should be fitted closely, and covered with wire-cloth on the outside, so as to exclude all flies.
A wire-cloth screen just above the outlet tube prevents the fish escaping.
On the side of the boxes where the water escapes should be wire-cloth, so fine as not to allow the eggs to pass through.
In warm weather the cover should be taken off; in its place should be put the super over which wire-cloth has been tacked.The Library of Work and Play: Outdoor Work|Mary Rogers Miller
