Jean Moss is one of Britain's leading knitwear designers, her innovative combinations of intricate textures, striking colourways and sophisticated styling have been widely influential over the years. A self-taught knitter, she has been producing her own unique collections of handknits for more than twenty years, as well as designing for Rowan Yarns and many international fashion houses such as Ralph Lauren, Laura Ashley and Benetton. She lectures in the UK and Europe and is a regular visitor to the US, where she teaches sweater design courses extensively.
She is an ardent maker - stitches, clothes, food, music and gardens immediately come to mind - and has always believed that good design should be available to all who appreciate it, not just the few who can afford to buy couture. To this end she has written many books, the most recent being In The Mood.
