Cables and texture shine in any yarn colour, but there is something about the way the texture deepens in shades of white, like footprints in snow. Debbie Bliss’ new collection celebrates this fabulous shade from creamy ecru to chalk whites, and the Alaska jumper is a fabulous conglomeration of cables and diamond motifs with a high ribbed collar in gorgeously soft Falkland Aran. Knitted in pieces and seamed, Alaska is a deliciously rich and warm jumper that will keep you challenged, with absolutely delectable results!
