Cone Services

cone services - pre-winding icon


We can pre-wind your yarn onto a dye pack in preparation for the dyeing process. We have SSM precision winders that produce a high quality dye cone with the perfect density to allow an even flow through the dye pack during the dyeing cycle.

cone services - drying icon


We have two RF Systems driers. The driers have automated settings to ensure that no matter what the substrate is that is being dried is, it will be dried perfectly leaving the correct moisture in the yarn.

Beam Services

This is the process that takes yarn from a cone and put it onto a beam ready for bleaching or dyeing. We can creel up to 640 ends on to each individual dye beam. We have 2 West Point creels that we use for this process.

Sized warps dramatically increases weaving efficiency. We can run up to 10240 ends together on to the weavers beam through the sizing process, thus allowing constant inspection throughout the entire warp beam.

With our state of the art Staubli leasing machine, we can supply a quality beam that is ready for the loom. Our Beam service is perfect for longer length warps, minimising waste, process time and cost, whilst applying size, which increases weaving efficiency.
