Caledonian Dye Works, Inc. is a commission textile dyer of cotton, rayon, wool, silk, nylon, acrylic, polyester and linen yarns and blends. In addition to the above fibers, Caledonian is capable of dyeing polyester yarn that once woven can be marketed as “bleach cleanable fabric.” Caledonian has the ability to tube natural yarn that comes in on cones and the capacity for coning the yarn after dyeing to insure good quality running yarns. The dye house is able to handle lot sizes as small as 30 pounds and as large as 1000 pounds. Our specialty in the textile dyeing industry is catering to customers with dye lot sizes in the mid five hundred pound range and less. Caledonian has eighteen package dyeing machines and four skein dyeing machines capable of handling a multitude of poundage variations suited to our customers ever changing market requirements.
We pride ourselves in doing quality textile dyeing and giving our customers the added personal touches in color matching that is so often needed in this demanding market. We are located in an area of Philadelphia that has had a long and historic history of textile manufacturing. The industries Caledonian serves with pride range from hand knitting yarns to yarns that will be eventually woven into fabrics for home furnishings, hospitality and safety markets. Kimberly Fitch Livingston, a fourth generation family member, is now at the helm of our corporation and holds an undergraduate degree from Franklin & Marshall College and a MBA in textile and apparel marketing from Philadelphia University.
Today, our dyeing can be found in such places as Obama’s Presidential Oval Office, historical homes, presidential homes, re-enactments, theaters, offices and homes around the world. We look forward to working with you to achieve your goals in superior color matching for your products.
