Survey of the European yarn fairs for spring/summer 2017

The latest update in this series of reports summarises the trends which were on show at the European yarn fairs for the spring/summer 2017 season. The author of the report visited Filo, Pitti Immagine Filati and Première Vision Yarns where she interviewed exhibitors and found out first-hand which trends were proving to be the most popular. Overall, there was a positive atmosphere at the fairs, due largely to the continuing popularity of knitwear as a high fashion item. Lightness and transparency were key features of yarns and knitwear on display for the season. Colours were mostly light, fresh and neutral, but there was also evidence of indigo blues, metallic effects and strong bright colours. Linen and linen blend yarns were important, and there appeared to be more on offer than in recent years. Some linen blend yarns had a dry and papery handle, while others were soft and fluid. Cotton was another favourite, and many spinners were offering extremely fine extra-long staple (ELS) cotton yarns, or blends of cotton with luxury fibres such as cashmere and silk. Fancy yarns were also prominent, and there were many examples of tape yarns, bouclé yarns and frisé yarns on display.
