'Quality is always in fashion' - Baruffa Yarn
Baruffa Zegna launches The Yarns for Fall/Winter 2009-10 seasons.
Gossamer cashmeres: Daily luxury that cannot be renounced it is difficult to find a single expression that encapsulates the richness and preciousness of these products made using select and sought-after raw materials which are subsequently crafted into yarns of outstanding quality. Brightness, softness to the touch, satin-finished surfaces, refinement and daily convenience all go to make up these prized and complex blendings.
The goods form part of the b-exclusive line and have been designed to meet contemporary needs for precious elegance and day-to-day comfort. They are of impeccable and sophisticated countenance, they combine the simple gratification of wearing the garment with the joy of feeling the sensation of its delicate touch on your skin.
Excellent quality wools: tradition – technology – responsibility the drive to achieve the Italian based manufacture of an internationally recognised brand cannot disregard the pursuit of a perfect synthesis between tradition, technology and responsibility. Our past, present and future have all implied the need for a well-defined model of growth that includes an on-going dialogue between our company and local communities and between consolidated knowledge and forward-looking research.
Hence our slogan: culture and knowledge cannot be cloned. To reinforce these concepts we have coined another maxim which, since the early 20th century, has neatly encapsulated our products, the changes we have undertaken and, finally, our sense of socially responsible innovation: “quality is always in fashion”.
Super extrafine 200's 170's – 140's – 120's from time to time they can be fine or gossamer, or perhaps smooth and glossy, or else gentle, soothing and seductive in the ultra-light weights. These high-quality yarns are obtained from super extrafine wools following strict criteria, in the sense that only fibre of no greater than 13.5–15.00–16.5 microns is selected, and with the utmost care.
The high quality of the raw material consents an infinite range of colour options, including sophisticated supermelange shades. Fancy matted and carded yarns wool is a precious key player in our collections and is used as a decorative element in our fanciest yarns. The yarns take on some what coarse features in the high thread counts, to the point where they produce three-dimensional effects.
Buttons and mélange shades are converted into graphic elements to adorn and colour knitwear. The bouclés have a thick and light, as well as a soft and enveloping irregular texture. They can be multicolour or more soberly monochrome, minimalist, come in nonsolid colours or with flashes and mouline contrasts.
In short, these rich yarns extol shaggy effects, as can be seen, for example, in the mohair and kid fur lines. The need to discern the softness of the material has led to better compactness in order togenerate effects of greater thickness in these gritty and sporty carded yarns, whose slightly matted appearances stir up images of flannels. “air spun” for extreme lightness air spinning is a technology designed and perfected to add extreme lightness and softness to yarn. The desire to manufacture yarns that manifest illusionary weight (in the sense that they are soft, spongy and bulky in appearance, but virtually ethereal to the touch) lies at the heart of this technology.
