The weaving process...Blending

Blending is where we mix together precise recipes or raw wool to get the perfect fibre mix for each individual product.

During the blending process fibres pass through opening machines which separate the fibres out and remove loose dirt and contaminants. Lubricants are then added to help the fibres move without excessive damage.

The wool is then taken to mixing chambers and layered to ensure good mixing before being pneumatically moved to a picker machine where final blending and opening is carried out.

The principles of this process haven't changed over the years, we just have more sophisticated technology to help us these days!
