About National Spinning

Our origin

National Spinning Company

Founded in 1921 by Phillip and Carl Leff, the company is still privately held, although half of the stock was sold to the employees in the 1990’s through an ESOP transaction. Originally, wool yarn was manufactured in Jamestown, NY and sales were based in the Northeast and Midwest, but the company expanded greatly during the era of synthetics. In the 1950s and 1960s the company built new facilities and relocated its manufacturing to North Carolina, USA. The company expanded into the nonwovens industry in 2012 with the acquisition of Carolina Nonwovens, a producer of nonwoven fabrics for a wide variety of industrial end-uses. Today we operate 2 nonwoven manufacturing facilities, one in Maiden, NC and one in Fostoria, OH with a corporate office in Washington, NC
