Tow is the individual bundles of fibres which make up the strands in woven
or uni cloth.  Known as gunstock to polyester people.  It is about half the
price per kg of uni, needs nothing to hold it together, goes around compound
curves without kinking and is not damaged by the weaving process.  It is the
form of carbon used for filament winding.

At present it is unobtainable, but if you pull the individual fibres from
uni or woven cloth (bit more difficult with knitted), then you can use this.
