Filo is a re-incarnation of Amalfi, the beautiful yarn that has been so popular the last 5 years. This yarn is a solid cotton core, wrapped with shiny nylon, giving both comfort in warm weather plus just a hint of glitz. The main difference is a smaller gauge, which provides a lot more versatility for Filo.

It has a lot of body to it, so it looks like shiny silk without all the drapey, saggy-ness of silk I have swatched it myself, and washed it, and it gets a bit softer, but is still firm enough to hold the design features of more structured patterns. At the same time it will produce a great lacy fabric!

There are numerous patterns in the Fatto a Mano Spring and Summer magazines. Pullovers, wraps, cardigan, and lots of inventive scarves too. We are bringing this yarn in gradually so there may be a week's delay or so in shipment, depending on the color.

I bought this for my sister and she loves the yarn! I bought some Lang yarn when I was in Switzerland last year and it's a great quality.

5 of 5 My new BFF's March 30, 2017
Reviewer: Emily Kupersanin from Brookeville, MD United States  
I'm so happy I found this website. Fell in love with a yarn I found in a random yarn shop and could not find it anywhere until I stumbled upon HandKnitting.com. Laural and John were so helpful with making sure I got the right colors and as quickly as possible. I am currently working on my senior thesis and needed my yarns as soon as possible and Laural and John responded immediately and shipped my yarns right away. Had I found this website earlier I would have sourced all of my yarns from these two. Can't say enough how much I appreciated this website and I am super excited to continue buying more yarn in the Future.
