Laine Luoto Hat by Tiina Huhtaniemi


"Keep us warm on cold, dark winter days when summer is only a memory, a whisper in my ear."

Issue 7, winter/spring 2019, draws inspiration from silent landscapes of Lapland. From white, pure snow – and on the other hand of gentle darkness, so typical to our Nordic winter. From warm, cosy cottages in the woods, cups of freshly brewed coffee. From soft light floating through old windows, highlighting golden strands of hair falling on her shoulders. From the longing for longer days, fields of spring flowers.

What thoughts do these words evoke in you? We would love to see your designs. We are looking for timeless knitted garments and accessories for adults using natural fibres, especially wool, and designs that embody a casual and easy-going way of life.
