Knitcol

Knitcol (Knit in colours) is a yarn in 100% merino wool, machine washable up to 40°C, available in a collection of 10 colours. Knitcol was launched in the winter collection 2007/08 and it marked a turning point for Adriafil. The idea took inspiration from old stockings, for which people would create various patterns in different colours, striping the surface of the finished garment. This effect was named "jacquard effect", following the success of the loom bearing the same name, that allowed people to produce fabrics with complex patterns in them. Knitcol also recalls the "fair isle" fashion, deriving from the UK islands, in which the same concept was applied to wool sweaters. What is the difference then? Knitcol has been one of the first yarns to be produced by the means of a new computerised dying technique: the thread runs under a nozzle thet releases the colour in 8 different shades, automatically creating the jacquard effect. It is the perfect product for a beginner that wishes to easily knit up something fancy or for the expert knitter, who can use Knitcol to decorate plain coloured garments. Adriafil regularly updates the colours, adding new combinations of them, by renewing the yarn that launched the "automatic jacquard" in 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.
