Linear means "in a straight line", which is just a word used when the width is not taken into account.

For example, rolls of cloth, or wire fences, or sold by the linear foot or linear meter. It is just not taking into account the width of the roll, just the length.

So if you want to convert linear feet to square feet, you would multiply by the width.

In your case, where you have grams/linear yards, you would multiply by 1/width to get grams/square yards.
