  • Napping

    We offer napping to create a range of surface characteristics on our circular knit fabrics (both tubular and open width) as well as brushing the back of sliver knit fabrics. We offer commission napping on knit or woven goods.

  • Picking / Blending

    Whether we are blending many bales of the same fiber to open and emulsify them or the intimate blending of many different fibers for the ultimate performance blend, our opening/blending department has both sample and large production capabilities allowing us to get consistently homogenous blends.

  • Project Management

    There are times when customers are looking for “the whole package.” We can produce a fabric, have it laminated, cut and sewn, and even packaged (depending on your needs). Between our own in house capabilities and our relationships with other laminators and cut and sew houses, we would love the opportunity to find the most efficient and cost effective way to complete your project or product.
