Creative Knitwear: yarns made to amaze


09 May 2024


Linificio e Canapificio Nazionale, a pioneer in the production of knitting yarns, began exploring new applications for linen fibre in the late 1980s, choosing knitwear as a field for experimentation.

This fibre, known for its comfort, freshness and elegance, also presented challenges that could delay the achievement of the set goals.


With the commitment and conviction of experts in the field, the company started extensive research. The production of 100% linen knitting yarns requires homogenous raw materials and a specific boiling treatment to soften the yarn.

The company started from straight knitting yarns with twisted yarns, both pure linen and blends, and after two years of study presented the collection at Pitti Filati in Florence.

After the success of this project, the company expanded its offer to include the production of circular knitting yarns, always aiming to maintain high product performance.

Today, Linificio e Canapificio Nazionale offers a wide range of circular and straight knitting yarns, available in different colours and finishes, such as yarn dyed and dyed tops.

With its experience and expertise, the company is recognised as an important player in the textile sector, offering innovative and customised solutions for weavers and brands looking for high quality products.
