Innovation, quality and performance


Carefully Selected Yarns

At Baltex, each type of fibre we use offers different qualities that can be tailored to suit the desired characteristics of the knitted textile, such as softness, strength, stretch, and moisture management. Our yarns are made to the highest standards and supplied to us by the World’s leading specialist yarn manufacturers.

By sourcing our own yarns, we have total control over the quality of the materials used in our products. This ensures consistency, reliability, and the highest quality standards.

Specialty Yarns

Along with traditional fibers, Baltex also works with advanced fibers including meta-aramids, para-aramid, glass, UHMWPE, and others. This allows us to make fabrics where properties such as heat resistance, or moisture absorption, are crucial for example in ballistic protection and aerospace industrial applications.

Some of the World’s most advanced yarns are incorporated in our textile manufacturing such as Coolmax, Nomex, Conex and Kevlar.

A Wide Range of Technical Fibres

At Baltex we predominantly produce fabrics made from synthetic yarns such as polyester, nylon (both virgin and recycled) and elastane. We also work with natural fibers such as Cotton and silk.

Since Baltex control the yarn sourcing process, we have the flexibility to customize the yarn specifications according to your unique requirements. As well as knitting multifilament, monofilament, and spun yarns, Baltex specialize in making fabrics using yarns that are at the cutting edge of technology with the aim of meeting the demand of the most advanced industries.
