We can help with corporate knitwear styles well beyond our stock knitwear styles.
Working with the knitwear brand ‘Charles Kirk’, operated by Flamingo Apparel Textiles, we can usually supply designed corporate knitwear in made to order quantities of 100+ made in Europe, and lower than that in the UK.
In addition we can supply much larger bulk quantities sourced either in Europe or Asia.
Corporate sweaters, cardigans and slipovers (tank tops, if you prefer) can be made in a whole range of styles. We can supply zipped tops, security sweaters with or without patches and epaulettes, ladies cardigans in different lengths and shapes and much more.
We often receive designs from corporate clothing suppliers, or designers working for them.
From design sketches we can have a conversation about what yarn would be best and what weight and type of fabric is required for the customer.
Tell us about any additional features required.
That normally allows us to have discussions with the factory and give a ball-park costing and an idea of the lead-time.
Or send us a garment to copy, maybe a retail style, showing your amendments:
And of course we can colour-match to your customer’s corporate colours, either through using a spinner’s large stock range of shades, or by dyeing to match. Send us a Pantone reference or a piece of fabric and our first point of call will be the shade box:
Tell us the design and the overall likely quantity and we will let you know the implications for either bringing in a spinner’s yarn shade or having a batch of yarn dyed to your customer’s corporate colour(s).
Yarns suitable for corporatewear
The most common yarns used for corporate clothing are:
- 100% Acrylic
- 50% Merino Wool 50% Acrylic
- Teflon-treated 50% Merino Wool 50% Acrylic
- 50% Cotton 50% Acrylic
Our TPA 100% Acrylic is a high-bulk, low-pill yarn, ideal for corporate knitwear. It gives a firm and pleasant handle (unlike many acrylic yarns!).
Our wool-acrylic is in fact 50% Merino Wool 50% Acrylic, a really high quality yarn.
We can also offer Teflon-treated 50% Merino Wool 50% Acrylic as an option.
And our cotton-acrylic has a soft handle and yet is durable in a corporate situation.
