IAFIL emphasizes on elegant threads for Spring Summer
Aug '08
IAFIL presents its spring summer collection with emphasis on elegant threads, that reach a level of preciousness rarely seen.

Spring comes for particular attention with cashmere based yarns and more technical threads with a more asual "attitude".
And lots of linen.

The very best cottons:
PIMAs, GIZAs and SUVINs, cottons that are refined, precious and ultrafine.

A collection within a collection that lives and renews itself every season. Summer 2009 also sees the addition of SUVIN CREPE, a yarn characterised by its roundness and the richness of the fibre, as well as its lively hand and incredible twist.

SUVIN CREPE: 100% Peruvian pima – count Nm 2/170.000- gauge 16-18
Silk mixes:
Two threads mix Peruvian pima with silk: ISKRA – which twists cotton with a silk organzine – and PEONIA - an extremely feminine thread, both soft and sophisticated.
ISKRA: 85% Peruvian pima – 15% silk – count Nm 2/80.000- gauge 14-16
PEONIA: 57% Peruvian pima – 43% silk – count Nm 48,000- gauge 18
Linen yarns are mixed with silk and cotton for threads that are extremely flexible and versatile in a surprisingly wide range of gauges.

Choose LINO SETA for intimate mixes for a soft hand, or choose WOW for twists that create crisp effects rendering the feel of a very pleasant and soft hand more casual.

LINO SETA: 70% linen – 30% silk – count Nm 2/40.000- gauge 12
WOW: 85% linen – 15% silk – count Nm 31.000- gauge 16

Linen is also combined with cashmere for an extremely exclusive mix that twists ultrafine linen threads with ultra refined cashmere ones to create a yarn that combines freshness and softness.

CONNEMARA has an extremely soft hand, worked in extremely fine gauges, and contains the best qualities of these two natural fibres.

CONNEMARA: 50% linen – 50% cashmere – count Nm 2/50.000- gauge 14

Stretch fabrics:
A stretchy feel for stylish solutions that seek comfort and lines that contour the body. Fresh and summery yarns for a crisp, crepe hand.

COEUR: 86% Peruvian crepe pima – 14% elité – count Nm 2/60.000- gauge 14
STRIPPER: 75% Peruvian crepe pima – 25% elité – count Nm 33.000- gauge 18

The Bios:
The development of organic yarns, which have featured in IAFIL collections for several seasons, continues.

Organic Peruvian pimas have reached an extremely high level of refinement – BIO is spun to its maximum straight gauge – and the available shades, naturally dyed by infusion with natural grass pigments, consolidate an extremely varied range.

IAFIL's BIO yarns are the only ones to make use of naturally dyed organic Peruvian pima. This is why IAFIL's BIO are ICEA certified.

BIO: 100% organic Peruvian pima – count Nm 2/100.000- gauge 18
BIO NATURA: 100% organic Peruvian pima – count Nm 2/40.000- gauge 12.
