Cotton yarns

Since 1871 CWC Textil AG is the synonym for high quality cotton yarns. Cotton, also known as the «white gold», is still the most used raw material in the textile industry. With partners all over the world we are developing and marketing a vast range of cotton yarns around the globe. Whether plain or doubled, gassed or mercerised, crêpe or voile, we have the suitable product for most enduses. Our stock service covers a good part of these qualities.

For many decades CWC have a very close collaboration with one of the leading Peruvian textile groups. Their Pima cotton yarn, due to its silkiness also known as «Angel Hair», enjoys the highest reputation in the world of fashion. The renowned handpicked Peruvian Pima cotton is distinguished by an extra long staple and its fineness. With it the most precious fabrics can be produced.

Similar to Peru Pima Egyptian Giza and US Pima ELS cotton yarns are particularly appreciated by high-grade textile producers. Giza yarns excel in strength and imperfections while US Pima is very clean and contains almost no foreign fibres.

Our other long staple cotton yarns are mostly spun from local Indian and Chinese cottons to grant a favourable price for a very good product. These qualities are mainly used for the production of fine basic fabrics.

Last but not least CWC offer a distinct assortment of mid staple cotton yarns for a wide range of enduses. Yarns spun with US/Australian cotton are suitable to produce white fabrics.
