Filature de Rougnat
It has a rare expertise in spinning fine fibres and dye. Setting up and adjusting carding machine depending on the compositions to make fine, regular threads is a complex process, as is creating a range of thread colours (which means transforming something visual into a chemical recipe). The manufacturing steps for threads are as follows: working, which consists of preparing the wadding; washing; carding, which eliminates impurities and brings the fibres parallel to one another; stretching, which stretches them out and further aligns them; combing; refining the fibres by stretching them on the roving frame and twisting the thread to obtain a continuous strand feed on the frame; milling; dyeing the skeins; balling.
The majority of its business comes from sales within France. The company also exports to the following countries: Sweden, Norway, Benelux, Switzerland, Portugal, Poland, Denmark, Japan, Spain, Russia, Ukraine.
