We can currently provide our products in several sizes from 5cm x 5cm cut pieces to 20cm x 30cm, although we can provide larger sizes on demand. We can provide our modified cellulose fabric in roll format, slit reels, cut pieces, ropes depending on requirements. These can be provided non-sterile or packed and sterile. 

We keep some stock for the most commonly requested sizes for our x-ray detectable yarns, and therefore can deliver these on-demand.
