The yarns “blown” (air-spun), are defined as follows for the characteristic processing.
It is an innovative system that, unlike the traditional spinning, does not use the cohesive force of the torsion to aggregate the fibers but that “containment” of a tubular fine, almost invisible, within which the fiber is blown into the free form. In this way the yarn and the garments obtained with it are incomparably lighter than conventional ones. Moreover, thanks to the particular structure of the “blown”, aerial and not compact, create the “clothes-barrier” which act almost as “double insulation” between the body and the external environment, which keep the temperature stable and enhance breathability (warm clothes and dry).
