100% Alpaca Adriafil - Sierra Andina

The Alpaca fibre is appreciated for its insulating properties, for its lightness and its silky texture. It is important to remember that alpaca garments were worn by the Inca emperors of the past. The alpaca fleece is wavy and crimped and this makes the fibre suitable for spinning for the knitting industry. It is a fibre with a low level of lanoline and this decreases the odour of the raw material and makes it easy to wash. If compared with sheep wool, alpaca is warmer and more resistant. Adriafil collection propose Sierra Andina (100% alpaca) in as many as 35 different colours: 10 natural shades (from cream to beige and brown and from light grey to black), 8 natural dyed shades and 17 fashion colours of the Made in Italy. The yarn is fine and it measures 133 mt.

With the first cold breeze of these days, we all start looking for a soft and warm yarn to start the autumn season with a good sense of security. Adriafil Charme is every year a good solution: a chunky yarn, easy and quick to knit up and extremely soft. Cachemire and extrafine merino are noble fibres, that will make it a pleasure for you to work with this yarn, turning it into colorful accessories and warm evening gilets.


PATTERN IDEA: Yarn Lunare

Lunare is a yarn in bright and lively fashion colours, with a tone on tone shaded effect, very suitable for young people. It is a protective yarn too, considering the composition of 75% wool.

Formex 2011: Adriafil in the Stockholm Trade Show

Adriafil just concluded a new appointment with its European audience. Formex 2011, a swedish trade show at a national level for creative arts and household items and furniture, finished a week ago. Classic and fancy alternated on the stand in order to show to all the visitors the latest trends in the field of knitting yarn. Adriafil is proud to attend all the main European appointments with customers, to show the quality of Made in Italy yarns.


Fancy trend 2011

The Royal Wedding relaunches angora

Here is a picture of the beautiful Kate Middleton in the day of her wedding. Since the First Lady wore this lovely angora cardigan, the knitting world immediately reacted by finding new interest in this noble fibre. Angora is shed from the angora rabbit and allows the creation of very soft and warm garments. The quantity of angora that one can extract from the animal, though, is limited to its dimensions and the few annual sheds, making this yarn a luxury product. Adriafil presents angora in the classic colours white and cream (see picture)and in a whole range of classic and fashionable ones.


Yarn DUO PLUS, pure merino and Egyptian cotton together

Pure merino and an excellent Egyptian cotton together in a wonderful multicolour yarn. That’s DUO PLUS, the Double Knitting Yarn suitable for every season in 5 fancy colours. This is the “Mini-Pull Alice” from the Magazine “Dritto e Rovescio” n.50 and on the website http://www.adriafil.com/uk/ricerca-modelli.html?modelloricerca=alice

Knitting ideas: fancy shoes - yarn Lunare

For this year we give full play to our imagination with new ideas for the mid-season. Easy to knit, Adriafil fancy shoes are a good example of the outcome of the new yarn Lunare, made of 75% superwash wool. Lunare creates a pleasant shaded effect on the garment. Choose the colours that you prefer and match your shoes with a jacket.


The thinness of the fibre in Adriafil pure wool yarns

The caption on a label that states "Merino wool" is often not sufficient to determine the good quality of a yarn. One can find good merino wools but also ordinary ones. Unfortunately many people play on this perception of good quality based only on the name of the origin of the sheep. The degree of thinness of a fibre plays an important role in determining the quality of the wool. This can vary depending on the age of the animal, but also from the number of sheds and from its life conditions. The unit of measurement with which we determine the diameter of the fibres is the MICRON, that measures length in thousandth of a millimeter in the metric system. The less the thickness of a fibre, the more the softness of it. If a fibre is too thick, it can irritate the nerve cells of the skin - it is the case of some classic sheep wools, the thickness of which can measure up to 40 micron. Adriafil uses exclusively merino wool at low micronage, well known for the softness of its fibre. Thanks to the thinness, merino fibres (their thickness is established between 19 and 25 micron) folds themself when they touch the skin, avoiding to sting it. For those that can not perceive the lightness of such a measurement, just think that a human hair, in our opinion soft and light, measures from 50 to 100 micron! Clearly, extracting and treating merino wool is more expensive than a more standard wool, but thanks to this factor among others, the result on your skin will be much more pleasant.


Knitcol yarn - 6 new coming colours!

To satisfy the great request of all our customers, 6 new colours of Knitcol will soon be released! The most loved yarn of the Adriafil collection will display a 16 colours shade card, of which the new ones will be even more lively and characterized by a dominant shade. No variations in the quality of the 100% merino that composes this article. Machine washable.
