Welcome to FTS Dyeing

At FTS Dyers, we specialise in dyeing wool and its associated blends with synthetics, our dyeing expertise extends to all types of luxury protein fibres, synthetics, and cellulosics. These dyeing skills allow us to provide a first class yarn package dyeing service, on a commission basis to all sectors of the textile industry, including Hosiery, Domestic and Contract Upholstery, Apparel, Carpets, and Transport fabrics.

Founded in 2008, we provide yarn package dyeing from a site on the banks of the River Esk in the picturesque Scottish Borders town of Langholm. With a long history of industrial dyeing, the site was originally built in 1947 by The Langholm Dyeing Company and traded continuously until 2008 when FTS Dyers took over; harnessing the skills of generations and modernising the yarn dyeing equipment and production methods.

Traditional skills are important in the textile industry, but so are modern production methods.  At FTS Dyers, we combine both to great effect, dyeing yarns for clients all over the UK.

As the UK market leader, our technical ability is widely recognised as being first class; however we are also careful to match technical ability with first class customer service and welcome enquiries for yarn package dyeing and yarn sales.
