MILAN — Italian yarn makers set to showcase their fall 2015 collections at the three-day Pitti Filati trade show starting July 2 are noting a recovery in major traditional markets such as Japan, Germany, France, the U.S. and the U.K.
“Markets for wool outerwear knits that include USA, Japan, U.K., Germany, France and Italy — all established affluent consumer markets — are all continuing to slowly recover from the global financial crisis of 2008-09. With the addition of China, these comprise the top seven consumer markets for wool apparel products,” the Woolmark Co. said in its May Market Report.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly.
