!WORK: Cheney Silk: The Cheney Silk Company was an old firm, established in 1838 by the Cheney brothers as the Mount Nebo Silk Company in Manchester CT. The name was changed to Cheney Silk Company in 1843. With its innovative production methods, the company grew into the nation's largest and most profitable silk mill by the late 1880s. Cheney had pioneered the waste-silk spinning method and the Grant's reel. The company reached its peak in 1923, after which it quickly declined due to industry-wide overproduction and competition from new synthetic fibers such as rayon.
