Cariaggi is presented a series of full-bodied and enveloping lightweight yarns at Pitti Filati, the exhibition for fashion textiles and knitwear in Italy. The range includes Nirvana (60 per cent cashmere and 40 per cent silk, worsted), a voluminous yarn that makes those that wear it feel as if they are protected by a warm cloud-like cocoon. Play (100 per cent cashmere, carded), is a next-generation yarn that undergoes a special processing techniques making it possible to obtain a hollow tubular cashmere yarn that is said to be extremely light thanks to the air inside. This yarn can be used for all types of processing, also by hand, and offers plenty of scope for experimentation and creativity.
Bijou (90 per cent cashmere and 10 per cent silk, worsted) is a glamorous yarn with bouclé processing that gives garments a sense of dynamism and is perfectly suited to new color interpretations. The Frisson yarn is further embellished by very fine sequins and the Bouclé Persian-effect cashmere boucle yarn.
The colors for the new collection are soft and delicate yet warm and sensual at the same time – they range from different shades of pink through to natural beiges and more decisive purples and woody browns.
