Metropolitan fashion... Yarn bombing in USA.

It is also known as "graffiti knitting" and it is one of many forms of underground art that is receiving growing attention in the United States. The idea is very simple: using yarn leftovers or multicoloured fancy yarns - with a simple stitch or crocheted - on public surfaces. This allows people to "paint" and personalize cold or sterile public surfaces without using sprays or chalk, that contributed in throwing negativity on the "murales" artworks. Using yarn transforms is environmental-friendly and allows young artists to keep their art concept in place. A famous artist of this movement is a sculptor named Dave Cole. Find the pictures of his works on the internet. More will follow on this subject...

Why should you choose Adriafil Cheope?

Here are some technical information about the yarn Cheope, in order to remind you what constitute the Adriafil quality that you can buy in your closest shop. Cheope is a yarn entirely produced with Egyptian cotton. Its structure is made of 18 threads. The basic thread is called "30" (which means that it is so thin that it takes 30000 mts to make 1 Kg of it!) The "30" thread is at first doubled to obtain what is called "30/2". This is eventually tripled obtaining the "30/2x3 - so a "30" thread doubled and tripled. What is resulting is tripled once again by obtaining a final "30/2x3x3" which is ADRIAFIL CHEOPE: 135 mts in a 50 gr. ball. Fine cotton indeed!
