Sensual Knits
Luxurious Yarns, Alluring Designs
Yahaira Ferreira

Modern knitters are simply in love with luxury yarns and the stylish items they can make from these opulent, irresistibly touchable materials. Sensual Knits feeds their hunger for fashionable projects made with the finest merinos, alpacas, silks, cashmeres, and angoras. Beautiful models display the clothing, and every exquisitely photographed garment provides a stunning example of how classic can also be very sexy. A textured jacket features a nipped waist that hugs a woman’s curves, a bishop-sleeved sweater has a daringly plunging neckline, and there are camisoles, silky negligees, and evening dresses too. And be assured: these pieces will look great for years to come, not just for a single season. Any advanced beginner who has mastered the basics can handle these patterns.

Yahaira Ferreira received her BA in Anthropology from Cornell University, and her MFA in Photography from Savannah College of Art & Design. Her background in photography gave her a sophisticated eye for colors and shapes, and as a passionate knitter, she saw the need for luxurious and hard-to-find yarns, and so launched her retail Web site,, in April 2006.
