Shirring elastic is used by clothes makers to create a smocking effect. We can supply it in a variety of colours.
Spandex or latex thread is covered with two layers of nylon or polyester. It’s commonly used for gloves, socks and medical fabrics.
Single covered yarn is light and resilient – fabric made from single covered yarn is neat, flat and crease-resistant. It’s commonly used for waistband elastic in ladies’ hosiery.
Air intermingling is a specialised and economical process that uses compressed air to bind filaments together, giving either a smooth or a textured yarn. We supply air intermingled yarns predominantly to hosiery manufacturers and the circular knit sector.
