Package Dyeing

Bulmer & Lumb has a well established reputation as a package dyer and a speciality dyer of spun and filament yarn, natural and synthetic yarns including wool, cotton, nylon, polyester, acrylic, silk, cashmere, mohair, rayon as well as a wide variety of blends of these.

The modern and versatile production facility utilises Thies eco-bloc technology, and Thies Quattro technology, facilitating variable packing, flow speeds and fill levels, giving minimum disruption of the yarn.

We have the capability to accommodate most types of dye packages with soft winding facility available for parallel sided dye packages.

Dyeing vessels fitted with latest generation computer controls, reporting remotely to a central plant explorer system give us optimum dye cycle repeatability, superior fibre treatment, excellent shade reproducibility and efficient batch traceability.

A computer controlled Total Management System means that we have the ability to closely monitor order inputs, delivery and invoicing; the benefit to our customers is rapid and accurate provision of information.

Automatic bar-coding, check-weighing and dispensing of dyes ensures that yarn is dyed to the customer’s exact specifications.

As with all our services, we are able to offer the flexibility to provide the same excellent level of service to  both small and large customers with single batch sizes from a single cone to 900kg.
