History of Company:

Cap Yarns has been a reliable spun yarn source for the apparel and textile industry since 1899. Over the past 100 years the company has grown to be the largest manufacturer in the United States of cotton heather, mélange, novelty and custom-blended yarns. Ring spun equipment is utilized to produce a very eclectic line of spun yarns with unsurpassed quality.

In May of 2009, Cap merged with CloverTex, LLC, a producer of premium, ring-spun yarn. The combined companies operate under the Cap name, and the owner of CloverTex, David Roberts, now serves as the CEO of Cap.

Cap Yarns’ motto is “Spinning the Products of Imagination”. Through the experience of its creative work force and state of the art technology, Cap Yarns strives to transform customers’ ideas into profitable realities. Unmatched color creation and matching begin in a unique R&D facility that is set up with a mini-manufacturing center, enabling it to develop customer color submits in a matter of minutes. Orders are processed with a just-in-time attitude while maintaining the highest quality standards.
