RawStock Fiber Dying Process
Raw stock dyeing is about taking a bale of fiber in natural fiber form with specific deniers and cut lengths to the dyeing process. The fiber is then broken up by hand or by auto loader into a dyeing machine . After the raw stock dyeing process is completed it is removed from the dyeing vessel by an internal carrier holding the fiber and then delivered on to a mobile skid carrier or into a holding truck with wheels .These carriers are then taken to the drying line areas in which the next process occurs.
The fiber is now dyed, soaking wet and needs to be extracted and re- opened.
Water is extracted from the fiber and is constantly being re- opened in this process .
Once this process is complete the dried /opened fiber goes to re-baling in order to send to the next phase of textile processing.
The next step in the textile process can either be targeted to spinning ,felting, or non woven fabrications as displayed on the Littlewood Web Site.
