Autumn is such a beautiful time of year. If you love colour it's an easy season to enjoy, as the leaves begin to turn, the low autumn light casts a warm glow, turning bright blues to jade, and pale yellows to gold.
Debbie Bliss has launched some gorgeous new colours in her main range this season, which really celebrate this theme.
Cashmerino Aran Tonals has four new colours - here you can see Gold (09), Ice (10) and Jace (11).
There are also four additions to Debbie Bliss Rialto DK. As the lavender in our gardens begin their fade to grey, it's lovely to see the same colour picked up in new shade Wisteria (102). There's a new rich yellow in there too - Mustard (99), which is begging to be made into some cabled mittens. Top left you can see Ink (101), and bottom right is Forest (100).
Cashmerino Aran is a staple for many knitters and currently comes in an impressive 44 colours.
Here you can see new shades Prussian (85) and Maroon (88).
Last, but by no means least, are the new colours of Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino.
Basically, they're the essence of autumn spun into yarn!
From top left we have Russet (315), Mustard (316), Wasabi (313). On the bottom row, from left, you can see Mouse (309), Olive (312) and Airforce (311).
I feel like these colours need combining in some kind of stripey project stat, so check back for an update on that soon!
