I have been told that this is the sort of cotton used for Lace Making.
And, as I found these in Malta - that is quite likely.
I found several boxes of these in an old warehouse I cleared - the edges of the boxes are a little crumpled from long years in storage and there is the odd bit of discoloration on the outside of some of the balls.
