HF Filati by Suedwolle Group debuts at Filo, the yarn trade show based in Milan, with its first weaving and circular knitting yarn collection
46th FILO 28, 29 September 2016
HF Filati, the Italian producer of fancy yarns acquired by Suedwolle Group in January 2016, debuts at Filo with its new “Fancy” Spring/Summer collection, designed and developed for the weaving and circular knitting industry. HF presents the best of its expertise in fancy yarns with a range of yarns featuring micro or more perceptible effects and combining the best natural and man-made fibres with state of the art twisting technology.
The company was established in Schio, near Vicenza, in 1963 and owns two brands, HF and LORIS, that have been benchmarks for fancy knitwear yarns in the Italian market. In 2015 HF Filati achieved 4 million € revenues.
With this acquisition, the aim of Suedwolle Group is to guide the development of the company towards an international perspective and to start off a new expansion phase of HF FILATI’s product offer within and outside Europe. Suedwolle Group widens its product range even further as well as its capacity of answering to the customers need, intensifying its presence in the Italian and European market.
The Spring Summer 2018 Yarns for Weaving and Circular Knitting
The Ondé Lux line includes yarns containing a large percentage of very fine bourette silk or coated organzine silk which gives fabrics a crepe but very soft and silky touch. Yarns that are especially interesting and rich in noble fibres are Swing Nm 84/2 in Linen/Silk, and Lino Chic Nm 64/2 Cashmere/Silk/Linen.
The Crépon line consists of Crespino-type yarns but with a soft, silky touch. Natural fibres are combined with continuous nylon filaments, including trilobal, which gives the fabrics a discreet sheen with an iridescent effect. Yarns of particular note are Barbuda Nm 90/2 in Linen/Triloba Nylon, and Bequia Nm 142/2 in Modal/Matte Nylon.
Three-Dimensional is a series of yarns for the production of fabrics with discreet geometric patterns. These yarns are produced with up to three components, including wool in some cases, and the different degrees of absorption of the fibres means melange effects can be obtained with piece or yarn dyeing. Particularly interesting are Scacco Nm 23.000 in Wool/Cotton/Nylon and Chiffon Nm 90/2 in Viscose/Nylon.
The Wavy Line is a series of wavy, frisée, vrillé, bouclé, nubby and stretch yarns in fine, discreet patterns for the creation of rich, cool, light and comfortable fabrics. Especially noteworthy are Trinitad Bouclé Nm 25.800 in Cotton/Nylon, Guana Stretch Nm 35.000 in Viscose/Nylon and the nubby yarn Tortuga Nm 20.000 in Wool/Cationioc Polyester.
