Specialist commission weavers, producing the world’s finest cloth in Yorkshire – the home of wool and worsted textiles.
WHAT WE DO
Investment in technology, systems and people allows us to produce cloth of the highest quality with unrivalled flexibility for our customers. We have the ability to manufacture lengths from 12 metres to bulk orders of 3000 metres. Read the article from Twist Magazine.
Yarn comes into Pennine Weavers from all over the world. Our customers are safe in the knowledge that their yarn is stored in a safe and secure environment, with as much care and attention as if it was our own. We can store up to 140 tonnes of yarn. All items, regardless of the size, are barcoded into our warehouse and all yarn movements logged and accounted for.
The saying the “a good warp is the key to successful weaving” is one that we take to heart. Our most recent investments have been in single end warping. In January 2014 we took delivery of our first Karl Mayer GOM24 single end warping machine, we liked the machine so much that in February 2015 the second machine arrived, our minimum warp lengths are now 7mt. For larger warps our Benninger Benmatic section warping machines with individual end tensioning and robotic leasing allow us to make warps up to 3000mt in length. So any warp, any size.
Working closely with machinery manufacturers is key to ensuring we stay ahead of the field in weaving and preparation. The Staubli Safir Drawing In machine is a truly unique and state of the art machine with colour recognition and the ability to differentiate S and Z twist yarns at a speed of 160emds/minute it is truly world class.
32 Dornier dobby looms all equipped with name edge Jacquards. We can weave up to 210cm wide and upto 24 shafts. Weaving 141.5hours a week, weaving 35,000mt/week. Pennine’s in house quick style change is key to our continued success, developed using our rich history of production and engineering skills allied with our constant desire to innovate to offer our customers ever more flexibility in a constantly demanding environment.
The jewel in the crown – in house menders show a level of patience and skill to ensure only pieces of the highest quality leave Pennine Weavers
Stringent QC protocols ensure that every possible level of care and attention are taken before each warp starts, and throughout the whole weaving process. Our philosophy is to ensure quality is designed into our manufacturing process.
