Contamination Free Yarns

Introduction

White and light colors are very sensitive, this makes it easy for any foreign particle present in the cotton fiber to appear prominently on the fabric. Specially, discerning customers have very stringent norms and to use conventional cotton yarn with contaminations is not solicited for the product profile.

In order to satisfy our quality conscious customers, we have not only improved our processes by using state-of-the art technology but have also focused a lot on sourcing of the right quality cotton. Apart from importing contamination free cotton from US and other countries, we have also worked with farmer groups and ginners to reduce contamination levels. We are also engaged in training and development of best practices during cotton picking and ginning.

On the technical side, we have installed machines that remove contamination at two different stages - pre-spinning and post spinning.
