These picture are of a new Debbie Bliss range for Spring 2009. The range is called Eco Fairtrade and this the cotton DK weight. It is organically produced with no pesticides or chemical fertilizers and it is harvested by hand. The yarn is dyed with non toxic dyes and the water used is recycled and rendered drinkable bu a non profit making organisation. The colors are all quite muted and it has a slightly silky feel.
We have had snow on and off here, not enough to settle but it is very cold and my chilblains are not happy! I am expecting Ilga Leja’s new patterns this week and also some cashmere which I shall be able to offer at a good price. It is chunky weight and ideal for warm sweaters. I am getting six shades! Now I am going to take a pheasant off the bone for Slip’s dinner! Back tomorrow.
