Our services are specially tailored to meet the needs of customers both within the UK and overseas. We operate dye vessels covering weights ranging from 1Kg to 350Kg, all electronically controlled to give accurate control of the process resulting in excellent colour consistency.

We dye yarn both on package and in hank as well as offering a full garment and sock scouring and/or dyeing service

You can choose from our large range of yarns, supply your own, or we can source a yarn to meet your needs. Our friendly, helpful staff will make the process simple and swift.

If you do not find the shade you require within our range of standard shades, then we can match a colour of your choice. We achieve excellent colour reproduction by using our spectrophotometer, match prediction software and laboratory facilities.

Below are a few examples of yarns we have produced in the past, if you would like to enquire about what else we have on offer then please click here.

Outlast®/Nylon

Outlast® is the acrylic fibre containing Phase Change Material. There is non toxic paraffin wax encapsulated within the fibres that behaves much like water in that it can change between its liquid and solid states solely due to temperature. The Outlast® material absorbes and stores heat to cool the body when you are active and releases it back to you when you are inactive (preventing you from becoming chilled).
