You might have noticed I breezed right by that “Anansi” bit.

Anansi is the new laceweight!

Anansi: Like the trickster spider himself, Anansi is smooth and sleek, perfect for your delicate lace and intricate work. Made from 50% sleek, shiny silk, and 50% super soft Merino wool it is a luxurious pleasure to work with or to wear. Put up in 1200yd skeins, large enough for most medium sized knitting projects, or an average woven scarf.

Lace Weight Yarn
50% Silk / 50% Merino
4oz – 114g
1200yds / 1100m

Also, note in the fibers section the montadale/alpaca blend. This is a 60/40 blend I have a very limited quantity of. It’s a really really nice fiber, I think. The Montadale provides a nice loft and handle, while the Alpaca lends its epic softness and warmth! Yarn spun from this blend halos nicely. The overall feel is very soft, more than soft enough for next-to-skin for me, though YMMV.

That’s all for now! Enjoy the shop update!

30 Pounds!

Of squishy deliciousness has landed upon the Gnomespun doorstep!

Tunis, Horned Dorset, a Montadale/Alpaca blend, a Rambouillet/Corriedale blend, and a new multifiber blend similar to the “New England Blend” I had a while back!



All locally sourced from the Eastern Seaboard and prepped for your enjoyment! Watch for upcoming fiber appearing in this fabulous stuff!

Also, I finally got in a new batch of Eshu for your worsted yarn needs, and am looking at a new silk/merino laceweight base! MMmm

That’s all for now!
