Spinexpo Shanghai 2015, a leading professional trade show for fibres and yarns, is getting ready to open its doors to where exhibitors will present their latest trends and developments. Linen and linen blends are expected to feature heavily this time.

The show has attracted 170 exhibitors coming from 15 countries, selected for their quality and creativity. The Spring/Summer 2015 session of SPINEXPO will also feature a new installation that explores the world of colour in greater depth, as well as a new trend area dedicated to activewear.

Xinao Group, a large scale wool textile enterprise, believes linen’s functionality caters to the fashion trend of modern textile industry and will be introducing their latest Cross yarn, made from 55% extra fine merino wool and 45% linen.

Linen is a functional fibre that has anti-allergic, antistatic and antibacterial properties, the company says. It can absorb 20 times more moisture than its own component and can be described as a natural air conditioner. Therefore, wool linen blend yarns have the characteristic of being stiff and smooth in hand feel, warm in winter and cool in summer. They are suitable for producing high class knitwear.

Another key product in the company’s collection is Georgette, a 100% extra fine merino wool yarn that allows production of knitwear with dry and smooth hand feel, and clean surface. The yarn is enhanced in strength, elasticity and drapability.

The Consinee group – Top Line, a producer of fancy yarn, fashionable novelties for high end knitwear production, believes linen is becoming more and more popular for the social elites and professionals due to its unique moisture absorption, dispersion and water transport capability.

Working from the unique design and guideline of a French designer, Top Line has chosen the best linen fibre differentiated by its origin and characteristics, and created blends with cotton, spun silk, cashmere, viscose and nylon to develop a series of knitting yarns with multiple layers, structures and specifications with the view of filling the gap for high-end market across the world.

Winning Textile, a fancy yarn producer, has developed linen and cotton, blended with viscose and nylon, and added matt finish and soft handle, still maintaining the shape and refined natural-feel.

Other products from Winning for the coming S/S 2016 season are sophisticated sheen or irregular slub of rayon, viscose nylon blend, and superfine stretch nylon enhancing a comfortable good shape look.

Südwolle Group, a market leader for worsted spun yarn for weaving, circular and flat knitting in pure wool and wool blend, has developed a new product and a new market strategy.

They are moving to their next development phase, Südwolle Group 5.0. They call this Fit for Purpose – Customization, Structure and Culture. As a company, they are evolving from a classical textile manufacturer to a more service-oriented approach, said Hans von Schuh, Managing Sales Director.

In order to ensure that they are fulfilling the same high standards in all areas of ecology and corporate social responsibility, they routinely audit their suppliers. Eco Balance, the company’s review of its environmental achievements is published every year giving customers complete transparency of the production side of the yarn.

The 25th session of Spinexpo to be held from 9-11 March at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition & Convention Center.
