The Roanoke Virginia press is reporting the imminent closure of Jefferson Yarns (formerly Jefferson Mills):  Read the press release here.

 

AKC Note: Sad to report the closing of a long standing player particularly in the nylon yarn processing area. In the 1980s and 1990s Jefferson was a significant producer of nylon DTY with extensive twisting capabilities. Servicing the hosiery, apparel and lace markets they were an important player, but as their customers moved overseas survival became more and more difficult and many downsizings later it appears to be the end of the business.
