Talks have been continuing throughout the day over the future of one of Hawick's biggest employers. Shares in Dawson International, which runs Barrie Mill, have been suspended while directors decide whether to put the company into administration.
The firm has a large pension deficit, and the 200 people employed there are facing a second night of uncertainty about the future of their jobs
The mill makes cashmere garments to be sold to some of the world's top fashion brands.
If the directors decide to place the company in administration, there hopes that could trigger a buyer to take over the Hawick site and keep on the skilled workforce of 200. the local MP Michael Moore says administration is highly likely:
Dawson International was once a major force in Scottish textiles but over the last decade its shares have plummeted, and it has sold off much of the business.
Another option available is to try and renegotitate attempts to put its pension plans into a protection fund after efforts were rejected last month.
The company's decline reflects that of the textile industry acros the Scottish Borders, until a few years ago it employed in excess of 4 and a half thousand people.
A combination of the recession and production being moved overseas has seen that number halved in the last decade.
