Meet Big Nom, a super-soft, super-squishy, thicker version of our fingering weight Nom yarn. It’s got the same 80/10/10 merino/cashmere/nylon blend but can be knit with the speed of a much chunkier yarn. Big Nom is classified as an aran weight, and is extremely versatile. For hats, use a size 7 US needle and the fabric will hold its shape and not fall off your head in the wind. For  scarves or shawls, move up to a 10.5 US needle and you’ll get a nice, flowing fabric.

190 yards per 105 gram ball. $26 for semi-solid colors, $29 for self-stripe.


On a personal note, I am already addicted to this yarn. So far I have knitted 2 hats and a shrug, and I will soon be warping my loom for a woven scarf. There has been so much fingering weight action around here that I forgot how nice it is to be able to cast on a project and finish it in a single evening. Chunkiness = SPEED!

I’ve got some awesome new yarns scheduled to be released next year, so I’ve decided to discontinue my Foot Fetish dk line to make room for the newcomers. (Honestly, it makes me a little sad because I LOVE this yarn.) But it’s good news for the customers, because all remaining stock is on SUPER DUPER CLEARANCE until it’s gone. HALF OFF!!! That means enough yarn to make a pair of socks for a mere $7-8, and the added bonus of finishing quicker because of its thicker-than-fingering size. (I usually ship within 24 hours, so it’s safe to assume US orders will make it in time for Christmas if you order by the ~16th.)
