Debbie Bliss is for Babies

Summer is the perfect time for baby projects. Baby projects are small, compact and lightweight and Debbie Bliss Cashmerino is the perfect summer fiber. Baby Cashmerino is a five-ply sport weight yarn in 55% merino wool, 33% microfiber and 12% cashmere. It is machine washable, which makes it practical and perfect for gift knitting. We have recently restocked this popular yarn in colorways that are appropriate for all tastes. We've got the traditional pastels
bright, fun, fanciful shades
and darker, more autumnal colorways, too.
I have knitted many baby items with Baby Cashmerino and I love working with this yarn. I've made sweaters and booties and blankets and soakers - some for my son and others for gifts. The gifts are always well-received.

At Close Knit, we stock baby pattern books by Debbie Bliss as well, and many recommend Baby Cashmerino. Booties, Blankets and Bears and Simply Baby are two books that we currently stock.
And, we recently received Debbie Bliss's new book, which guides the knitter through the basic design process of designing for babies.
There are many options in Baby Cashmerino - from booties
to blankets and much more.
So, whether you are knitting for your own baby or for a loved one, be sure to check out Debbie Bliss. Baby Cashmerino is a fun and luxurious yarn to work with and Debbie Bliss's baby patterns are simple, clearly written, timeless designs.
