Take The Tour part 2
You may be aware that that fleeces are scoured (washed!) after they are sheared from the sheep. This helps clean the wool ready for the spinning process.
However, At Adam Carpets, we actually scour the wool again, this time in hank form. The reason is for this is to make sure that the structure of the wool is at its best ready for the dyeing process. Our scouring machine resembles a conveyor belt that submerges into a steel bath filled with warm water and detergent!
We are very proud of our colour range and our own testing has proved that by scouring the wool again, we achieve better results.
Here you can see a ‘hank’ ready to be put through the scouring process.
