Knitcol

Knitcol (Knit in colours) est un fil en 100% laine merinos, lavable à la machine jusqu'à 40°C, présenté par Adriafil en 10 different couleurs. Knitcol a été lancé dans la collection hiver 2007/08 et il a marqué un tournant important pour l'entreprise. L'idée est née en s'inspirant des bas d'autrefois, pour lesquelles on tricotait des dessins décoratifs aux differents couleurs, qui créaient des rayures sur la surface de la maille. L'effet produit s'appelait "effet jaquard", d'après le succes du dessin complexe sur les tissus créé par le machine à tisser de la famille omonyme au debut du XIXème siècle. Knitcol s'inspire aussi à la mode du "fair isle" provenant des isles du Royaume Uni, où le meme concept s'appliquait sur le pulls. Quelle est la différence donc? Le Knitcol a été l'un des prémiers fils réalisés grace à une moderne technique de teinture digitale. Le fil glisse sous un gicleur qui relache la couleur en 8 nuances differentes, en donnant vie à la fantaisie de couleur. Avec un simple tricot à l'endroit et à l'envers on puet recréer le meme jacquard. C'est le produit parfait pour le débutant qui veut tricoter simple tout en créant des effets fantaisie, et pour la tricoteuse d'experience, qui peut utiliser le Knitcol pour décorer un tricot en couleur uni. Adriafil met régulierement à jours les coloris avec des nouvelles combinaisons, en renouvelant le fil qui a lancé le "jacquard automatique" en Europe.

Cashmere II - Curiosities and production.

The Cashmere fibre is obtained from the undercoat of the Kashmir goat's abdomen. Between the animal skin and the outer rougher layer of the coat, Cashmere filament grows thicker during the long himalayan winters. Then, with the spring moulting season, the fibre is sheared, carefully washed and the dehairing process takes place, to separate the more noble hair from the outer coarser one. Cashmere is now ready to be dyed and spun into yarn, while the rougher fibre is employed for non-apparel products. So, what are the advantages of wearing Cashmere? Certainly, the insulating property of this material - light and warm at the same time - and the resistance to wrinkling, its durability and the natural growth in softness through use.


Knitting ideas: "Orange twist", knitted with Stella Alpina yarn.

A new sparkling idea to colour winter time with Adriafil classics. Marina Orry releases a new sleevless cardigan with a intriguing pattern to it, carried out with 100% superwash merino yarn Stella Alpina. It is an aran weight yarn, still slim fitting and elegant, that holds colder weather well.

Knitting targets young people

In the last few years we witness an unprecedented attention from the knitting market towards younger people. Knitting renews itself continually, also learning from them. Many are the youth that, in order to learn this great hobby, subscribe to knitting classe, open blogs on the internet to exchange opinions, invent new ways of making art with needles in their hands and try to make up their on look. The latest fashion is the knit-café, where friends can knit and drink something together, relaxing and enjoying the nice atmosphere. Adriafil always supports these initiatives and works for the creation of yarns able to meet youth's taste.


Knitting ideas - Gaia thick shawl

Chunky weight is one of the fashions that are coming back for the autumn-winter 2010. It is the perfect occasion to introduce a new pattern idea with Charme, a classic Adriafil yarn that associates cashmere and extrafine merino in a thick thread for with incredibly soft result. Gaia shawl is suitable for both the mid-season and the winter season, combining it with a long sleeve shirt. It is at the same time elegant and easy to make.


Pour en savoir plus... Le Cachemire: histoire et curiosités - Ière partie

Le Cachemire (ou bien Cashmere) prend son nom de la région himalayenne du Kashmir, où le chèvre produisent une laine de qualité très rare, légère et resistante au meme temps. Bien que déjà connu à partir du 11ème siècle, le Cachemire devient populaire en Europe pendant la periode de Napoléon (debut 19ème siècle) pour le commerce de chales. Ils etaient importés au debut et dans un deuxième moment la France commence sa propre manifacture. Aujourd'hui la production de Cachemire reste assez limitée: il faut penser qu'une chèvre des plateaux asiatiques peut en produir que 150 gr de fibre par ans. Cela signifie que dans un ans on peut tirer d'une chèvre que la quantité nécessaire pour réaliser une éscarpe. Néanmois, la qualité et la durabilité du Cachemire, font de cette fibre l'une des plus renommés et demandés dans le monde.

After the conclusion of the knitting retreat “knitting the nature”, at which Adriafil has collaborated by donating yarns, Miriam will attend on August the 14th the competition “Back to Back Challenge” in Sterling, Scotland, in order to attempt a new Guinness World Record. In this attempt Miriam - with a team of other 7 knitters - will shear a sheep, spin the yarn and create a men’s sweater. In order to reach a new world record, Miriam and her team will have to conclude the whole contest in under 4 hours, 51 minutes and 14 seconds.

Cheope is a classic of the Adriafil summer line: great performance, machine washable and with a good price for the quality.
