  • 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.

  • 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®.
