Let the fuzz fly. Cozy yarns were prominent at last month’s Expofil, where exhibitors showed a plethora of mohair and angora blends, albeit with an airy, soft hand. At Lo Cicero, novel looks were key, with printed yarns and multicolored tweed effects. Luigi Boldrini & Figli showed tape-like yarns combined with hairy ones, while at Jacob, metallics got into a mix that included both tape and fancy fringe yarns. Meanwhile, Ojo, a Japanese spinner of abaca — a natural filament fiber made from Manila hemp — showed the versatility of its yarn with denim, a novelty knit and floral lace.
