Laycock International processes and supplies natural fibres also known
as noble or rare fibres.
Products can be tailored to suit the precise requirements of individual spinners but are mainly semi-processed in scoured, carded web and top form for both woollen and worsted spinners.
These fibres are utilised in a variety of weaving and knitting yarns such as linear, boucle, loop, chenille, brushed etc., and can be spun from coarse to superfine counts due to the wide micron range of these versatile fibres.
Clients from a wide range of disciplines use our fibres to make various products
including: carpets; apparel, knitwear; furnishings; blankets; duvet fillings;
and wall coverings.
Our advisors are always happy to discuss new ways of utilising natural fibres and working closely with clients to explore the most efficient and cost-effective use of our products.
Spinners who have not considered working with speciality fibres may well be surprised at how viable these, previously cost-inhibiting fibres can be. Natural fibres can greatly enhance a wide variety of products while keeping costs competitive.
Producing a fabric with only a small amount of a luxury fibre such as mohair or alpaca can also increase its desirability in the marketplace.
Laycock International has the knowledge and expertise to show how this
can be achieved and is constantly experimenting with new techniques
to get the best results for its clients.
