Sliver knitting, was invented in Wisconsin in the Forties. It was invented by either Edward Borg of Borg Textiles, in Jefferson, Wisconsin or Joseph Rosenberg, of Argonaut Mills in Milwaukee. Glenoit Fabrics, started in Beloit, Wisconsin acquired Borg Textile in 1996. Argonaut Mills changed its name to Roller Fabrics in the 1970's as knit paint rollers became more popular and supplying fabric to paint roller manufacturers became a large percentage of their business. Roller Fabrics acquired Monterey Mills, of Janesville, Wisconsin in 2005 and would continue operating under the Monterey Mills® name. Six months later, Monterey Mills acquired Tex-Tenn Corporation of Johnson City, TN.
