A 800 yard unopened, original label, turn of the century, spool of 8oz. CARPET WARP FOR WEAVING from the January & Woods Inc. Maysville Cotton Mills in Kentucky. A bit apart from our usual fare but when we had an opportunity to acquire a few spools of this wonderful old cord from turn of the century American grown and milled cotton we could not resist. Besides those textile collector / historians who would enjoy an early unopened display spool from the historic old Maysville, Kentucky cotton mill, there are other Antiquers who will recognize the practical use potential of 800 yards of turn of the century Kentucky milled, 8oz cotton warp. (Easily distinguishable from modern spun cotton twine, this material will do well in any number of antique applications.)
Prior to its recent demolition the historic old Maysville Cotton Mill had been a leading producer of carpet warp, rug yarns, cotton twine, twisted cord and tent rope. It had been in continuous operation since the first building was erected about 1834 with the exception of several months during the Civil War, when due to the inability to secure cotton, the mill closed from November, 1861 to March, 1862. J&W was one of only a few cotton mills in the country that continued operations throughout the Civil War. 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 !
