    I believe the “whole cloth” reference is to the fact that the false claim or lie was created without reason or reference to truth, as in a suit hacked out of cloth without a pattern or design. Thanks for your website, by the way – don’t stumble this way often, but I always enjoy it when I do.

    How come manufactured doesn’t mean handcrafted?

    In my childhood I associated “made of whole cloth” with the tale of the emperor’s new clothes, which were, of course, nonexistent except in the king’s own mind. Just as truth is nonexistent in a lie or fabricated story.

    The author of the novel, “The Winner,by Gritz” had once told me that religion was made of whole cloth. That’s another way of putting it. But it does fill a need.
