Homespun Yarn & Accessories

Homespun Yarn and Accessories

Here at añañuca we work directly with skilled spinners in Chile to produce a range of highly textured homespun yarns ideal for both knitters and weavers. Chile has a long tradition of woolcraft, and the majority of the artisans that we work with continue to spin all of their wool on a drop spindle. Yarn is then dyed in small batches, in the home, using plants collected locally. This gives us a constantly changing colour palette - a reflection of the season and landscape in which the yarn is created.
These are rustic yarns, oozing with personality. Please don't be put off by the fact that they do not conform to the standard gauges used for manufactured yarns, and as specified in most knitting patterns. Simply take the time to prepare a sample swatch before you start and we are sure you will be delighted with the results! Any questions, drop us a line and we will do our best to help....
