Waldek inspects the regularity of the hackled ribbon.

HACKLING

It is not possible to talk about yarn quality without mastering the hackling stage. Thanks to our integrated hackling workshop, and the highly valued know-how of our teams, we are able to convert scutched linen into hackled ribbon. Vital for preparing unrivalled yarn performance, the ribbons are categorised according to several criteria: rigidity, thickness, colour, etc., then stored.

Nothing is wasted: every element is useful in linen. Our tows, the by-product of the hackling process, are precious for our dry-spinning mill thanks to additional transformation processess such as carding.

Quality depends also on an optimized preparation. This involves the creation of a homogeneous roving through the complex blending of up to 32 different hackled ribbons. Our recipies are a carefully guarded secret and adapted to the availability of raw materials.
