International and domestic sustainable suppliers are on offer at Yarn Expo Spring, running from 17 – 19 March

At Yarn Expo Spring, a range of sustainable, natural and regenerated products can be found from both international and domestic suppliers, paving the way for a more eco-friendly industry. The fair will now take place from 17 – 19 March 2021, a week later than originally scheduled.

How Tung Ho Textiles add value with fish scale waste
As a leading yarn and fibre exhibition, Yarn Expo is used as a promotional platform for showcasing all kinds of innovative, unique products from around the world.

With 10,000 years of history, see why spinners are choosing hemp again
Sustainable, efficient and with 50,000 possible end uses: hemp offers a useful product for a range of industries. Hemp fibres have been spun into fabrics for at least 10,000 years, but in recent decades, hemp has been a less popular choice for textiles. However, thanks to the crop’s natural benefits, for both sustainability and comfort, hemp is making a comeback in a huge range of industries, including apparel. Lithuanian hemp fibre supplier Naturalus Pluostas (Natural Fiber) joined Yarn Expo Autumn for the first time in September 2019, and experienced huge interest in their hemp fibres.
