Production Specifics

Bonar Yarns supply synthetic yarn for tufters and weavers, which can be bought by the kilo or tonne. No previous knowledge is required, and clients can get advice in regards to choosing the right yarn for your synthetic turf project. Bonar Yarns are also able to advise on how to go about creating a landscape surface or synthetic turf sports field to suit specific project specifications. The company work with partners to help create and install the final surface. Notes on colour - Bespoke colours of yarn can be manufactured on request e.g. blue, black, white, cardinal red, or to a specific pantone. New customers should note that the smaller the order and more unique the colour, the harder it can be to create due to the setting up of the machine etc. Colours also have to be tested for weathering which can take up to 1 year.
