  • Raw fibres are blended together in precise proportions according to the ‘character’ and ‘handle’ of the yarn required for the carpet in question​
  • The blend is scoured, pulled and teased until it is straighter, whiter and free of natural burs and foreign bodies
  • The fibre is systematically opened up , layered and cross layered before the resulting ‘web’ or ‘spat’ is split into ‘slubbings’ that are then pulled and twisted on a spinning frame. This helps to add strength to the single strand of yarn
  • Two or more of these strands are then twisted together – ‘doubled’ – and this results in a yarn with high tensile strength capable of being tufted or woven by the latest high-speed machinery at maximum efficiency and at the lowest production cost.
  • Colour is introduced either at the raw fibre stage or when the yarn is spun into the thickness and length suitable for the carpet in question.

If the fibre is solution-dyed, a technology that is only available in man made fibres, the colour is added at the polymer stage.

This ensure that whatever shade chosen is actually an inherent part of the fibre which gives solution-dyed carpets extra durability.

These fibres are particularly resistant to prolonged exposure to UV-light and will not be face adverse fading should they be exposed to harsh cleaning chemicals.
