Yarn and fabric orders decreased in Europe but remained unchanged in Brazil.

South America's and Asia's production on the other hand was somewhat higher (+5.2% and +2.3%, respectively).

Global yarn inventories fell by -1.5% in the 1st quarter 2009 compared to the previous quarter due to lower stocks in Asia (-2.9%) and Europe (-0.5%) and despite higher stocks in South America (+8.8%).
