We offer a range of different yarns with different compositions intended for schoolwear usage and have especially developed each one for its performance and comfort. Each yarn we supply has special benefits, helping to ensure that children look smart and are kept safe and warm, whatever the weather.

We are proud of our collaboration with high profile school knitwear brands such as TLC Courtelle and Teflon. We use such materials to produce yarns meticulously developed to meet the highest performance and colour consistency requirements.

LC Courtelle®

Courtelle® was the acrylic fibre developed by the British company 'Courtaulds'. The technology resulted in an acrylic fibre that was ideal for hand knitting and soft knitwear and was regarded as the acrylic fibre giving the whitest of all acrylics. LC Courtelle (Latent Crimp) was a remarkable development giving two distinct acrylic variants running the length of each fibre.

The only remaining Courtelle® manufacturing plant was in Grimsby UK but this has now been bought by the Chinese owned company 'Blue Star Fibres Limited'. The new owners have converted the plant for the exclusive production of carbon fibre and carbon fibre precursor for technical end uses. Courtelle as we knew it is no longer produced.
