Classic at Home is a timeless collection of knitted basics that will add sumptuous texture to any room. Each textile has been carefully considered for its luxurious handcrafted charm that will withstand the vagaries of fashion. Projects range from a quintessential cable knit throw in the softest cashmere blend yarn to a practical wash mitt knitted in economic hemp, as well as a chic yoga mat and slippers for essential comfort.
The range of yarns is natural, comfortable and easy to live with: cotton, alpaca, merino, cashmere blends, linen and hemp. All the projects are worked in a universally appealing palette of ecru, stone, natural tweeds, muted greys, with accents of deep reds and, of course, basic black to underline the timeless allure of all the designs.
