The New Timeless Classics

Inspired by the Dior's 1947 New Look collection, Debbie Bliss' stunning designs embody all the characteristics of that heady, feminine, elegant look so iconic after the second world war. Delphine, particularly, captures the nipped in waist and curvacious elements knitted in a gorgeous combination of Fine Donegal and silk mohair Angel yarn, and we just love the travelling cables and peplum in beautiful Manon. Adorable Clemence captures the optimism and freedom of the time in its swing shaping and abundance of cabling, and whimsically capable Romane is a sweet fitted cardigan with a neat collar, perfect for any occasion.

Timeless Classics collection

The Landscape collection

Inspired by a trip to Iceland, Debbie longed to translate the shades of the landscapes, the layering of greys, ebony and mossy greens with a pop of gold, into knitwear. The four pieces in the Landscape collection echo the Icelandic landscape, with cables representing the tumbling terrain and shading greys of the mountains.

Gudrun is a riot of cables and an homage to the craggy vistas; Flora uses Fine Donegal, Rialto DK and Angel to create texture and capture the colours of the tundra; Katrin is a nod to the classic Icelandic yoked sweater in gorgeously soft Cashmerino Aran, and Elin creates a patchwork whirl of texture inspired by the earth in rich Falkland Aran.


Introducing the Evening Embellishments Collection

Shimmer and shine with Debbie's new collection of beautiful beaded designs - simple silhouettes enhanced by beading techniques that add glamour and elegance to classic shapes.

Billie is a crew necked sweater with a wide scooped neckline that is decorated with a fabulous zig zag beaded yoke, echoed sweetly at the cuffs. If you love a neat cardi with a twist, you will adore Saffira, a cropped cardigan in Debbie Bliss Rialto 4ply with all over beading. Bibi is a sweet sweater with perfect drape in Debbie Bliss Piper with a cute collar embellished with a simple diamond beaded repeat, and Merle is a dreamily super soft shawl in Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino with an 1920s feel - this elegant piece will fold around your shoulders revealing a stunning Art Deco style motif at either end.

Evening Embellishments is a fun, sophisticated collection that will take you anywhere you need to shine!"

The Florals Collection

We're thrilled to introduce Debbie's collection, Florals! Four blooming lovely knits to make that will inspire you all summer long. The Rosalind Sweater is a stunning Fair Isle yoked sweater in just two colours in Debbie Bliss Piper, a fabulous lightweight DK crepe style yarn, and Chelsea is a riot of gorgeously textured moss stitch with leaf and bobble detail. We love the folded picot hem on Flora, a sweet cropped cardi with intarsia florals that you can pair with absolutely anything, and Fleur has a glorious cascade of roses tumbling down each sleeve with a pointelle style trellis stitch main section.

The Florals collection is full of whimsical, joyful and romantic inspiration, designed with British summer flowers in mind. Using Debbie Bliss Rialto 4ply, Cotton DK and Piper, each is cool and easy to wear, and full of elegance and drape.

Perfect Piper

When Debbie first saw this yarn, she fell for it immediately. Piper produces fantastic stitch definition, it’s silky and smooth to knit with, and the colour palette is made up of 16 rich and glorious shades. The pattern collection itself is inspired by city life and includes 9 designs that cover a breadth of skills.

I’ve always been someone who largely prefers classic smooth yarns because I love stitch detail. From the moment I felt it, I could tell Piper would produce this. I knew it would take colour beautifully too.”
