Delicate material found when sorting some rags (8)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

gossamer

'delicate material' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'when sorting some rags' is the wordplay.
'when sorting' is an anagram indicator.
'some'+'rags'='somerags'
'somerags' with letters rearranged gives 'GOSSAMER'.

'found' is the link.

(Other definitions for gossamer that I've seen before include "Material spun by spiders" , "Filmy threads seen on hedges" , "Delicate filmy material" , "Fine product of spiders" , "Very thin material" .)
