Is that Pepperell as West Point Pepperell? I remember sheets and maybe towels by that name.

side note to tomturbomatic comment: Yeah, me too - bought sheets under that brand name, from alot of different outlets. Not a lot. Your question sent me looking and finding this, from the link.

Pepperell had three mills humming by 1866; making shirting, sheets, and jeans for sale domestically and
overseas. The company merged with the Laconia Company in 1899, just in time for the slump in New
England's textile industry. In 1925, Pepperell began construction on its first Southern mill - the Opelika Mill in
Alabama. The Massachusetts Cotton Mills and the Lindale plant near Rome, Georgia were acquired in 1926.
The same year, one of Pepperell's best-known brand names was introduced, a line of sheets called Lady
Pepperell. Another mill was built in Opelika and a sales force was organized. In 1930 Pepperell purchased
Granite Mills, a producer of fine-combed cotton goods. By 1946, a new, wholly modern finishing plant had been
built and a new sheet factory was added shortly after that.

In March of 1965, West Point Manufacturing Company and Pepperell Manufacturing Company merged to form
West Point-Pepperell, Inc. Within two years, each of its name brands--Carlin, Martex, Lady Pepperell--had its
own full line of products for the bed and bath, and other new products and brands were being introduced. In
1968, WPP launched a $16 million program to expand and modernize. Alamac Knitting Mills, Inc. and American
Rug and Carpet Company were purchased by 1969.
