For the students the contest is a great opportunity to show their creativity and talent to an international audience. They want to improve their knowhow and I am sure, the contest will create a deeper understanding for the importance of yarn type, quality etc. for a successful design.

Despite this fact I myself think that the Italian spinners are still the most innovative and creative yarn suppliers for the fashion market.
