The soft and enveloping alpaca category: brushed (Mythos, Aimer) and bouclé (Volver) fabrics. Extremely pleasurable hand feels and noble mixes.
The bouclé mignon and slightly comfortable content of Diane also available in the brushed version Diane GT, perfect to be mixed in intarsia and jacquard.
Winnie is the mini bouclé with cotton, in Petra the multicolour print merges in the fibre.
This is a family of yarns that are voluminous yet light to the touch and on the skin.
The AIRY range takes its name from the particular spinning process, Flan Nm 10 and Anima Nm 2,7 look like wool felt and are ideal for raw cuts. In Artico, the wool warms an unprocessed slub cotton thread. Traditional buttoned tweed is disguised if is incorporated in the mixes: Babylon.
