Debbie Bliss Yarn

Originally a designer associated with Rowan, she made her mark on the fiber world as the creator of classic garments involving intricate textured stitches and vibrant colorwork. She is especially known for her adorable baby, toddler, and children's garments with colorful intarsia motifs. Clara Parkes, author of Knitter's Review, has said that "Debbie Bliss knows babies like Martha Stewart knows housewares!" For many years now, she has marketed her own line of high-quality yarns produced with her elegant patterns in mind.
