Italy's Filpucci, a world leader in creative yarns for knitwear has displayed its latest yarn and woolen selection at the Pitti Filati fashion exhibition being held from July 2 to 4 in Florence.
The range on display includes some 50 products including warm mohair and alpaca, light, compact, velvety textured knitwear, and eccentric, sophisticated couture designs. A collection meant for female and male fashion clothing includes around 30 yarns with many variations not only in terms of gauge but also of mélange and gradient effects. The selection features aerodynamic, ultramodern wools, eco‐friendly luxury fibres, new concepts in carded and unseen blends of colours.
Filpucci was a forerunner and promoter of the handicraft trend back in the eighties, when the Tricot Studio label redefined hand-knitting. Hand‐knitting yarns focus on rare but easy‐to‐knit varieties; new and old techniques. The products are orientated towards special technical yarns ideal for creative accessories including bouclé effects for scarves and hats. Yarns with vintage effects with fibres like alpaca and linen are also on display.
