  • Stash Essentials: Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino, Eco Baby, and Angel

    ebbie Bliss yarns are excellent quality, have consistent colourways, and come at great prices — true stash essentials.  Debbie Bliss Baby CashmerinoEco Baby, and Angel, which has us planning dozens of projects. Here are a few of the ones we're most looking forward to.

    Baby Cashmerino — This sport-weight blend of wool, microfibre, and cashmere is a definite workhorse. Super-soft and perfect for next-to-skin wear, Baby Cashmerino is an ideal yarn for close-fitting sweaters, winter accessories, and, of course, baby items. It would be perfect for a New Girl skirt, this adorable Teddy Bear, the Playful Stripes Cardigan, or the classic On the Beach v-neck pullover.

    Eco Baby — We tend to think of cotton as a summer yarn, but as the holidays approach Eco Baby (which is 100% organic cotton) is an excellent choice if you have someone on your gift-knitting list who can't wear wool, or if you work in a warm office and want something lighter to wear. To that end, Eco Baby would be perfect for a long-sleeved version of the Buttercup top, and it's perfect for these Spa Day Facecloths, which make great gifts. For kids, we love this Hooded Kaftan and we're totally enchanted by the Spanish Dress (use some Liberty of London fabric for the skirt and you're sure to make a little girl's dream dress).

    Angel (and Party Angel) — It's pretty hard to go wrong with a mohair and silk blend, and Angel is one of our favourites. It's both very soft and incredibly hard wearing (the samples we knit up over two years ago still look freshly blocked!), and we like both the demure solids and the flash of the Party Angel: It's perfect for pieces that need to be both lightweight and warm! Some of our favourites are the crocheted Claudia Scarf, the Ombre Cowl Hood (so cozy!), the classic Wisp wrap, and the luxurious Big Shrug.
