Available yarn

Browse through our available cakes to see what catches your eye!  Click on the photos for a larger image, or click here for yarn details and prices.  Please remember that colours may vary on different monitors or devices; I’m happy to send additional photos or description if you have questions about a particular cake.

When you see something you love, contact me via email to order.  Gobstopper cakes are a combination of technique and serendipity, so every cake is one-of-a-kind and can’t be repeated.

Shop updates are announced in advance on my Ravelry group; please come join us for all the latest news.

    I like the Sawbuck color and the DK weight. Do you have that available? I don’t understand how purchasing works on your web site. I’m sorry for the inconvenience. I saw your yarns on Ravelry first. Love them!

    • Yes, Sawbuck is available! Ordering is as easy as emailing me (click on ’email us’ in the website header) to let me know what you’d like– or, in your case, I’ll send you an email now that you’ve expressed interest in a particular cake. So look for an email from me in just a few minutes. 🙂

    Still looking for sockstoppers. Do you have any available?

    • gobstopper yarn says:

      Not at the moment. My production is always limited, so if there’s something you’d especially like to see, it’s always best to let me know via email so that I can plan ahead.

    Could you please send me details on Still Waters, Lurking Trout…..yardage, price, etc.?

    • Hi Susan,
      The yarn base is always listed in bold above the cakes, and details of yardage, weight, price, and so on are all on the Yarn Details page (just click the link in the header at the top of the page).
