To dance, to dine. To feel the air and the rain. To share a smile and a kiss. These are the values that inspired the Biella Yarn Autumn/Winter 2022/23 collection, from Südwolle Group - to stop for a second, to pick a thought and make our day better.

“At this important time when we are all directed towards a return to normality and our lives will be again driven by speed, efficiency, and goals, we would like to inspire consumers to take a moment for themselves, stop, and focus on what might improve their lives,” Südwolle says. “Some people will rediscover the pleasure of meeting friends, experiencing a feeling of enthusiasm, others will share new experiences and adventures. In all the situations it is important to choose the appropriate clothing not only during the movement but also for moments of quiet and relaxation in contact with nature and with ourselves.”

“Our Autumn/Winter 2022/23 flat knitting yarns collection supports the desire to return to an active life, to regain the pleasure of sharing with empathy and to be part of an essential individual and collective dimension,” continues Südwolle.

“Our best-selling yarns like Victoria Nm 2/30 & Nm 2/48 (100% Merino wool Extrafine, 19.5 mic, anti-shrinkage) and Brisbane Nm 2/60 (100% Merino wool Superfine, 17.5 mic, anti-shrinkage) expand their stock service range.”

Blends with GRS-certified recycled polyester such as Baltoro Nm 2/30 (Nm 2/30, 50% Merino wool Extrafine, 19.5 mic, anti-shrinkage, 50% GRS High Bulk Polyester) give the fabrics a voluminous and soft effect.

Sustainability and traceability of yarns play a fundamental role in the company’s collections and reflect the sensitivity and values that drive people’s daily lives. Among its winter proposals, for example, there is a growing presence of RWS certified wool yarns with stock service for selected colours (Victoria RWS Nm 2/30, 100% Merino wool Extrafine, 19.5 mic, anti-shrinkage).

The collection includes a selection of yarns made with the new OTW technology patented by Südwolle Group, which allows the creation of durable garments with a clean and smooth surface, which retain the soft and natural hand of Merino wool.

The wide choice of colours reinforces the feeling of the collection: the bright colours that recall a garden where friends meet, the delicate and pastel tones that can be admired at dawn and the warm brown tones of an exotic journey among aromas and flavours in a spice market.
