Cut-yarns are shaking up well-behaved textiles, lending gleefully anarchic motion to surfaces.

Dutel Création (Fabrics, 5G4-5H3) has purchased the last French machines for cutting and shearing. First, in order to retain the know-how, but also because cut-shorn looks are in the air right now… Mantero Seta (Fabrics, 5H11) can confirm this. They worked bold cutyarns on a taffeta base fabric with a nylon ribbon and a slightly shiny viscose cord for a torn-out «monkeyhair » effect, or an ethnic spirit. At Dutel, papery little butterflies stand out on a polyester-polyamide cotton blend. Or multicolour fringes randomly spring out throughout the length of the fabric. Yarns are also cut at Angelo Valera (Accessories, 4F15), which is presenting for the first time a double fringe of floating yarns on a polyester or polyester-cotton ribbon, tone-on-tone or chiné.
