Back Cover Text:
Wouldn’t you love to knit with a yarn that is such a tactile treat that you are
reluctant to let go of your project? And that results in garments that just beg
to be touched? Elsebeth Lavold found a Baby Alpaca yarn with just those
properties. She named it SensuAl.
She put it to work in what was to become The
Come Closer Collection. Look at the photos, and we think you will find
that the name makes perfect sense. Not only do the designs invite you to move in
close enough to feel the lovely softness, or, if you wear them, cuddle up in
them; the “design extras” in the details so typical of Elsebeth Lavold are also
there in abundance, begging to be carefully studied, and knitted.
Lalania, on the front cover, and
Cecily on the back, are good examples of the theme that gave
The Come Closer Collection its name. Additional
designs, equally inviting, are made in “The Silkies”,
Silky Flammé, Silky Wool and Silky Wool XL.
With a yarn so well suited for sensitive skin, it’s no wonder that
the collection includes two mother-and-child designs, naturally equally wearable
separately. Or a Möbius scarf so big it can be worn as an “almost vest”.
The Come Closer Collection is a skilled designer’s
invitation to you and your needles.
