Our Protective Textile division specialises in the production of technical fibre yarns.
Our expertise is in the selection of fibres with specific properties that can be enhanced when combined or blended with other complementary fibres or filaments.
Yarn properties can include Heat, Cut and Abrasion resistance.

Culimeta – Saveguard yarns are designed and developed around end user requirements; we use our depth of experience and knowledge of fibre developments to continually update our technical yarn range.

The latest filament fibre or yarn developments can easily be incorporated within our unique yarn construction, and combined with our flexible batch manufacturing methods means we can rapidly respond to our customers needs.

Dualtec® yarn blends are normally heat and cut resistant depending on the style specified and are spun from short staple fibre. The yarns are manufactured using the traditional cotton spinning system.
Cotton spun yarns tend to be a higher twist construction with a more round characteristic, they are also soft and comfortable to the touch and are ideal for knitting or weaving. Dualtec® yarns can also be manufactured using a core spinning process where fine filaments of wire or textile grade glass fibres can be included to increase the yarn's cut resistant properties.


Powerguard® yarns are designed for more extreme conditions and their construction is more complex, utilising more continuous filament yarns such as Kevlar*, Twaron* or Dyneema*.
Powerguard® yarns are manufactured using a combination of texturising, twisting and wrapping techniques that allow precise positioning of the fibres within the yarn construction.
The yarns tend to be heavier in construction than Dualtec® yarn however the special construction produces a comfortable feel that is ideal for knitted hand/arm protection.
