A 800 yard unopened, original label, turn of the century, spool of 8oz. CARPET WARP FOR WEAVING from the LILY MILLS - SHELBY, N. Carolina cotton mill. A bit apart from our usual fare but when we had an opportunity to acquire a few spools of this wonderful old cord from early 1900s North Carolina grown and milled cotton we could not resist. Besides those textile collector / historians who would enjoy an early unopened display spool from the old Shelby, North Carolina cotton mill, there are other Antiquers who will recognize the practical use potential of 800 yards of turn of the century Southern milled, 8oz cotton warp. (Easily distinguishable from modern spun cotton twine, this material will do well in any number of antique applications.) Lily Mills located in Shelby, on the edge of cotton country in North Carolina was founded in 1903 as part of growing industry in the post- Civil War, Reconstruction South. It was one of several mills which began to flourish in the region as they processed locally grown cotton in local mills. As with all direct sales, we are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with refund of the purchase price upon return as purchased! Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques !
