PARIS — Buyers attending last week’s Expofil yarn fair here came in search of bargains and unusual yarns to jump-start consumer demand in a difficult marketplace.
Coming off a string of difficult seasons, vendors cited continued slow business and reported that traffic at the three-day fair was light. They said sales of their most luxurious products were suffering as buyers took refuge in lower-priced yarns.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
