Letter To The Editor

Dear Editor:A much-belated thank you for the wonderful article (written by Technical Editor Eric
Vonwiller) about our Mount Vernon Alto facility and our slub yarn capability in the January edition
of ATI. We are extremely appreciative of the time you took to learn of our operation and our market
focus. The article has helped gain for us a stronger presence in the sales yarn world. We have been
delighted to have calls come in asking specifically for us to provide samples of cotton slub yarns
that are air-jet runable.We are responding to demand for our product that is currently surging.
While business conditions have been far from excellent, we have made steady progress and are
pleased with our results. Our plant personnel have continued to advance our plant efficiency and
output. Please know we welcome you to visit again should ever the opportunity be there for
you.Thanks again for the coverage you provided our Yarn Division in our effort to become regarded
as the premier ring-spun slub yarn producer.Sincerely,Charles L. Little Jr.President, Yarn
DivisionMount Vernon Mills Inc.
