Delicious new yarn!

My friends Sarah and Sam own Cephalopod Yarns. This week, they released their new line of lace weight yarns, called “Nautilace”. A yummy blend of¬†40% baby camel down / 60% silk, Nautilace is soft and shiny with just the right amount of squish to make it fantastic for shawls, and equally appropriate for next to the skin wear.

Cephalopod also dyes Bugga (70% superwash Merino wool, 20% cashmere Sport Weight yarn), Skinny Bugga (80% superwash Merino wool /10% cashmere Fingering Weight yarn), and Traveller (100% superwash Merino wool DK Weight yarn), as well as three separate fiber bases.

Most of their colors appear with different names on each base, so if you see a color you LOVE but need it in a different format they’ve got you covered.

Located in Baltimore, Maryland, Cephalopod Yarns originally began as the Baltimore studio of The Sanguine Gryphon. When that company closed in late 2011, Cephalopod Yarns opened its doors with all of the original staff and a few new faces.

One of my favorite things about Cephalopod, other than their yummy yarns in fantastically rich colors, is the people who work there. Sarah and Sam’s team have been universally kind, funny, smart and gracious, even when faced with my cranky toddler at the end of a long road trip.

The Cephalopod Ravelry group¬†features a thread called “Meanwhile”, where you can get to know some of the wonderful folks over there including Cacie, w ho is recording her second studio album, Lisa, an actress and performer, and Hallie who makes whimsical confections that look almost too good to eat.
