yard or liner yard

I have been ask to figure liner yard for wound care gauze. The question is; What is the difference in yard and liner yard?

When measuring fabric, and other items of set width such as counter tops or lumber, linear yard is used to enforce that it is the length taken into account, not the width.

So your gauze might be 6 inches wide, but that width is constant. A linear yard would be the length of it.
