This is the yarn that used to be sold as Maysville. It is still the same tightly-twisted unmercerized cotton that is a staple for rug weavers. Most of the old colors still remain, with a few new ones as well. Because of the tight twist and low elasticity, it is a great choice for warp for rug and tapestry weaving, or for making your own string heddles. Note that the natural is less expensive than the bleached or dyed colors, so for a weft-faced project where the warp will not be seen, you can save a little money by using natural. If you are interested in the polyester/cotton blend of warp, see it here.
