In a first, raw wool is being turned into yarn locally in Jammu and Kashmir to boost the woollen carpet industry.
Over the years, raw wool was being sent to other states to process it into yarn which increased its cost. With Jammu and Kashmir administration providing the aid to weave wool locally, the workers in the industry are hopeful that it will bring significant benefits to the woollen carpets industry in the union territory.
Woollen products made in Kashmir, especially carpets, have a big market across the globe due to its supreme quality.
With the proper dying of processed yarn that is produced from raw wool here, a whole new process has begun at the Indian Institute of Carpet Technology (IICT), Srinagar.
Weavers and other employees in the woolen carpets industry lauded the thoughtful efforts of the Jammu and Kashmir administrations for bridging the gap of wool production by bringing required manufacturing facilities.
Director of IICT Zubair Ahmad told ANI with the on-set of the wool production locally, newer markets will have to be tapped to boost the industry.
"I think it will suffice our purpose. I am sure that this can boost the woolen sector along with the carpet industry. The quality is fantastic!" he said.
"We have to find new markets for carpets. We can also explore the possibility of selling our carpets in the American market where it has a high utility," he added.
