The Textile Technology Center can assist you in product development and sample production. A wide variety of equipment is available especially in the area of yarn manufacturing. From melt spinning of filament to carding, drawing, ring, open-end, air-jet, and vortex spinning of staple yarns, the Center has state of the art equipment. Begin with as little as 30 pounds of fiber or an entire bale and produce a yarn while conducting standard testing along the way. Yarn may be evaluated via knitting and/or weaving. Develop a weave pattern for fabric construction. Weaving design software is available.
