Italian term or phrase: filatore
Fabric/fashion: the dictionary says "spinners", but isn't there a more up-to-date term?
eg:
Una peculiarità che non sfugge a un numero sempre più consistente di filatori, che alle scorse edizioni di Pitti Immagine Filati ed Expofil hanno scelto ****** in quanto prodotto affidabile e fortemente proiettato nel futuro

Explanation:
I can confirm what Ron says. "Spinners" is a good all-purpose term, but "yarn producer" is a perfectly acceptable alternative. Both are used on the EXPOFIL website, which is in excellent English.

Explanation:
My english tech dictionaries and a quick search on yahoo and ask show that the term is still used.
Recent additions to the lexicon might include "spin doctors"? Not to be confused with the cricketing term.
