Soieries Elite has become an expert in twisting, assembling and gimping two or more yarns together to get a new yarn that responds completely to the customers technical requirements.
While feeding a core yarn through a hollow spindle, we gimp another filment yarn around it to obtain a covered yarn. Depending the customers demand we can cover the core completely (closed gimp) or partially (open gimp). This results in a large range of effects and colours.
The same operation can also be used to reinforce a fragile yarn with another firm yarn and thus enable further processing in weaving or knitting.
These twisted yarns are available in a wide range of yarns and counts (Metric 40 to 6)
