Weller’s speciality for high density Cotton fabrics, combined with very fine and high quality yarns, allow us to produce top quality outwear fabrics. Using both 100% Egyptian and 100% Pima Cotton, in counts as fine as 1/60 and 1/50, superb raincoat fabric can be produced by rubberising or the application of water repellent coatings.

Using heavier yarns, dense weaving and the properties of Cotton when wet, naturally weatherproof fabrics can be produced for durable outwear that is windproof and breathable.

A range of classic fabrics are available in weights from 55 gsm to 950 gsm and are suitable for use in garments, shoes, hats etc. In addition Weller produce Cotton and Cotton/Wool blend fabrics for exclusive designers.


Composites

Composites

Various fabrics utilising Cotton, Flax and Linen yarns or blends are produced, in low twist yarns and open weave structures to allow the penetration of resin to form prepreg resin matrixes with added strength. Such composites can be used to improve sound absorbance, and economy in combination with carbon fibre layers, for automotive and many other applications.

Weller has worked for a number of years with a specialist partner in resin formulation and composite development.
