Deeply impressed by the extreme events that have involved and shocked the whole world, aware of the individual responsibility, people have realized the absolute need to respect the society and the environment and to take care not only of humans but also of animals, vegetation and climate.
Fashion, knits and textiles are engaged in a deep change towards sustainability in all its aspects, including respect and care for the animal world. One of the crucial debates concerns “fur” and possible solutions to avoid painful and cruel procedures.
As to knitwear, always inspired by natural elements in a combination of rationality and emotions, the spinners have explored the fur aspects and found interesting solutions through fibers blends, spinning and knitting techniques, virtual contaminations to recall the warm touch, the cocooning feeling, the voluminous lightness of real furs.
By cutting the threads in various lengths and using fine merino wool yarns, the knitted fabrics result in a protective surface with dense covering power.
Shaggy effects and coarser wool qualities reflect wilder aspects in compact blends with alpaca.
Bulky loop yarns recall the curly fleece of sheepskin in rich blends with alpaca and mohair, playing with graded colour effects or tonal mélanges.
The mix of thick and thin loops imitates the natural irregularity of animal fleece with balanced blends of wool, alpaca, mohair and polyamide.
Precious superlight voluminous bouclès result from blends of brushed hairy mohair, smooth cashmere and silk.
The gentle little lambs skin inspires the pure yarns made of bio-wool or extrafine merino wool, particularly smooth and comforting.
The flexibility of yarn construction and material mix allows creative unexpected fur effects, enriched with fancy colours and shiny synthetic fibres.
Virtual and real merge in highly imaginary visions, enhanced with sparkling metallic reflections in extremely luxurious variations.
