1. Preparation for spinning

In this section begins the process of PortWool diferents yarns production, here we proceed to the mixture of different fibers - natural or synthetic - in order to obtain an intimately mixed strand. This preparation is the starting point for spinning.

 

2. Spinning

In spinning, the preparation is transformed into roving yarn. Here it is defined the metric number and desired level of twisting in the construction of each type of yarn. In PortWool  usually the metric number oscillates between 5 and 60 nm.

 

3. Automatic Winding

The winding process consists of passing the spinning reel for yarn cones. Simultaneously, a clearance after wiring is done through technology that releases the yarn or from other fibers, whether thin thick places. The yarn is released from contamination or imperfections occurred in the spinning process.

 

4. Twisting

Whenever the client requests that the yarn are provided to one, two, three or more plies. It is in this section that yarns are twisted together.

 

5. Shrinking

HB (High Bulk) acrylic fiber has the particularity to shrink. This property permits the construction of yarns with improved appearance and touch.

 

6. Dyeing

In our dyeing section, we study and develop  colors and different finishes to our fabrics and yarns. With a wide range of devices, we can dyeing loads ranging from 20 to 300 kg per entry. The study and color analysis is carried out using the colorimetric technology.

 

7. Weaving and Finishing

In PortWool, fabrics are manufactured with several buildings, according to market demands. Twill, Taffeta and Gabardine are some of the most common constructions. Our fabrics are traditionally built with polyester / wool yarn manufactured in our plant. After weaving, the fabrics are sent to finishing section, where are properly finished and ready for marketing.
