We can provide you with sample hangers of our fabrics for testing prior to placing your bulk order. You can request sample hangers by using our sample order section on our website, or giving our sales department a call.
Once your order has been placed, our Knitting Supervisor schedules your fabric onto the correct machine. Our factory has state of the art Karl Mayer machines configured for different qualities of fabric. We are committed to the continuous development of our skilled workforce to keep abreast of modern knitting techniques.
The company has invested heavily in the finest knitting, dyeing and finishing equipment. Our dye laboratory has the latest infrared sample dyeing machines and state of the art spectrophotometer to give the very best shade matching. We are accredited to major chain store standards and are "Oeko-tex" and “Marks&Spencer” certified.
All shades are custom dyed to order - our expert in-house colour matching service can match to Pantone, customer standards and physical samples.
Dyeing & Finishing
We have a mix of beam and jet dyeing machines, giving us the capability to produce a range of dyelot sizes from as little as 200 metres up to 2,000 metres per shade. In addition, we have two dedicated sample dye machines for pre-production sampling.
Our Montforts Stenter (machine used for setting and drying fabric) combines cutting edge technology with control. It is also used for applying chemical finishes.
Quality is built in at every stage of the manufacturing process. We use the best quality yarns and fibres available. All our fabrics go through rigorous quality control checks. Our standards match those of Oeko-Tex and of Marks & Spencer. We check all fabrics for temperature washes, colour fastness, warp and weft stretch. Once the fabric is finished, it is fully examined to ensure it conforms to its specification before being sent to our customers.
