Raw Runecloth, as it's dropped from monsters, can be used in a variety of tradeskill recipes. Most notably it creates  [Runecloth Bandage] and  [Heavy Runecloth Bandage] with First Aid. It's also needed for the runic leather line of Leatherworking, and four pieces of Runecloth can be combined to form one  [Bolt of Runecloth] with Tailoring.

The bolts are used for most of the high-end Tailoring recipes, sometimes mixed with  [Felcloth] or  [Mooncloth].
