Q & A: Yarn-Dyed Jacquard Fabrics

Au Lit Q&A

Q: How are your yarn-dyed jacquard fabrics woven?

A: A yarn-dyed jacquard is woven using different colour yarns in both the warp and the weft. The different color yarns then create the pattern. Dyeing is simply the process of adding color to the yarn before the weaving process, in which cotton yarns are wound onto a tube and then loaded onto the dyeing carrier spindle (below.) 

The carrier is then loaded into the dyeing machine. After dyeing, colour approval and drying, the yarn is ready to go to the weaving mill.

As part of our Spring 2014 collection, we've introduced the following new yarn-dyed jacquards.
