The latest of great innovations of ilMioLino is called Capri: a pure linen yarn, studied and designed ad hoc to produce particular fabrics.
Its name and history honor Italy and its beauty, reminding of a wonderful island with an unprecedented history.
Capri: the name says it all. Linificio made a scrupulous selection of linen fibers to create a unique yarn able to satisfy each customer’s need.
The high compactness of this yarn, its regularity and peerless technical characteristics allow Capri to reach exceptional weaving performance, and still maintaining unaltered all the great qualities of its fiber.
Raffaele La Capra in 2009 wrote on Corriere della Sera: “Se è vero che ci sono nel mondo isole belle come Capri, nessuna isola, nessuna al mondo, può vantare una storia come quella di Capri”. That means: “If it is true that there are other islands as beautiful as Capri is, there’s no island in the world that can boast a history like Capri’s”.
That’s the reason why the new 100% linen yarn from Linificio e Canapificio Nazionale deserves this name, Capri: a tribute to the beauty of the island of the Gulf of Naples and to the three historical features of Linificio – prosperity, nobility and longevity – which well represent Capri and its fame.
Capri is pure linen, the finest one, studied to exactly meet every customer’s need, and born to be the top of the line.
Its production begins with a careful selection of the fibers, since everything always starts from the plant. Linificio’s plants are exclusively European, mainly they came from northern France, ideal habitat for a fabulous fiber with a profound and fertile soil and neutral ph.
Capri was born as a yarn for the highest technical use, but its features make it perfect also for clothing and high fashion products. It’s not just good looking, it is also a best performer.
Strength is the feature that convince customers to choose Capri. In fact, if during the manufacturing of a normal yarn there’s a waste of production time at least of 20-25% due to wire breakage, with Capri the loss is reduced up to 5-7%.
Capri is time and time is history.
More time and higher quality for customers choosing Capri for their fabrics.
The perfect combination of technology and italian craftsmanship that only Linificio e Canapificio Nazionale can offer.
Let yourself be tempted by the Sirens call that, as the legend says, used to live in Capri.
Let yourself be tempted by a yarn of unique beauty and quality.
