  • Dyeing

    Our dye house features both piece dye and stock dye capabilities. We have both sample kettles and production kettles allowing us to color match or develop colors in both start up programs and those that grow into very large production orders.

  • Shearing

    Equipped with two complete shear lines, we have the ability to shear just about anything from very high-pile paint rollers and buffing pads to very low-pile applications that require precision. We have experience shearing many different fibers from wool and polyester fabrics to cut resistant blends featuring Nomex®, Kevlar® or Celliant®.

  • 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.
