The perfect addition to any lamp or small appliance such as fans and radios, this beautiful fabric covered electrical wire is a great way to replicate that vintage industrial age charm.

This is BRAND NEW reproduction antique style 2-wire, 18 gauge (known as 18/2). Each wire is a stranded copper insulated wire (much like standard wiring of today) then covered in a braided rayon fabric. The fabric is smooth and shiny, similar to old industrial age silk covered wiring.

    Twisted cloth covered wire

    I was most impressed with the quality of this wire. Both the cloth covering and the internal PVC insulation were excellent quality. The twist was tight and resisted unwinding , unlike some on the market. I would recommend this wire to anyone.

    Best cloth covered wire, price is slightly higher than most typical wire but the quality and durability of snakehead vintage wire is worth the few extra cents per foot.
