Farmer Archie McLauchin Has Home-Grown Blankets, 1924

“Home-Grown Blankets” from the Friday, October 24, 1924, issue of The Pilot, Vass, N.C.

Archie McLauchin, on the old farm four or five miles out from Vass, raised wool from his own sheep and sent the wool to the mills up at Elkin and had Chatham Manufacturing Co. weave a lot of blankets. He is offering the blankets for sale, and in doing it is showing what a Moore county farm can do if the farmer wants to. He is also showing that the people who live in this section can have genuine all-wool home-made blankets if they want that sort. Both the farm and the wool project and the blankets are worth looking into.
