About Us. The UK's only independent textile blender rises to a position of strength from the ashes


Thank you for visiting Pennine Blending – we hope this website will give you an insight into our company, it’s ethos and expertise in fibre blending.

 The company is based in Milnsbridge, Huddersfield which in itself boasts over 700 hundred years in textile manufacturing.

The company was originally Ben Halls Weavers, before being broken down into various companies. It was at this point that Pennine Blending was born, originally under Malcolm and Stuart Weaving. In 1980, with the company in trouble, current owner John Hoyle along with Stuart Weaving took on the task to save the business, stabilise it and make it into the leading fibre blending company it is today. It is this longevity that leaves Pennine Blending as the last fully independent automatic textile blending company in the UK.

Dave Hoyle, John’s son, started with the company in November 1993 and is proud to form excellent partnership with his father in the business.

Our oldest machine, which ran day and night for over 20 years, was unfortunately destroyed (along with all our other presses) by a fire in 1998 and it was at this time that we turned a three story mill into the huge single storey shed that it remains today.

Dedicated fibre blending

Through investment, hard work and dedication Pennine Blending now boasts three dedicated blending systems designed to prevent cross contamination and supply ultra consistent colour blends. All systems have fully automatic bin-emptiers with two having computer controlled oiling units. We’ve recently added an atomiser oiling unit to the third system, providing greater penetration and control for the distribution of the customers chosen lubricant in their product – mainly polyester and synthetic fibres.

Each system can cater for a range of blend sizes, from trial blends of 10kgs up to 10 tonnes, dependent upon material.

Total blended fibre solutions

Pennine Blending offers a total customer solution for all fibre requirements, from purchasing raw materials, handling and storing materials and producing blended fibres to exact specification.

We also offer logistics for delivery to point of use, which obviously has benefits within itself. We operate on short lead times so our customers no longer need to finance large inventories of stock.

We also have the ISO 9001 accreditation for the complete quality assurance for our production.

Our diverse approach to Textile Blending covers the whole fibre spectrum from Polyester, wool, cashmere, angora, polypropylene, nylon, to the more specialised fibres, Kevlar, anti-static fibres and even steel.
