    Can we get some men’s patterns? Some of us men knit too and would like to make garments for ourselves in the luxurious fibers. Thanks for thinking of us!

    1. Yes, we know and love our male knitters! While the Luma Collection is decidedly a very "feminine" collection, the Arranmore Collection we just released was designed to be unisex, and many of the garments work for both males and females.
