Debbie Bliss Cathay Yarn
Cathay is the latest addition to the classic smooth yarns in Debbie Bliss' yarn collection. It is beautifully soft to knit with and the resulting garment has a lovely drape that compliments any figure. The blend is 50% cotton, 35% viscose microfibre and 15% silk knits on a 3.75mm needle with a tension of 22sts x 30 rows. This is a generous 100m per 50g and it is available in 12 shades including red, turquoise, pale blue and pale pink.
Debbie Bliss 'Cathay'
The new collection uses the natural drape of Cathay in fourteen designs that include a softly flared jacket, a simple wrap-over and asymmetric tops. Inspired by Chinese silks, Debbie Bliss has chosen a mainly bright palette for the twelve shades in the Cathay range, with the silk bringing an intensity to vivid purples, scarlet and gold, while including, as always her favourite duck egg blue and old rose.
