BARE NAKED WOOLS
Bare Naked Wools is an honest, gratifying line of yarns cultivated and created with quality in mind at American artisan mills. They are natural dye-free wools that make everyone from the farmer to the knitter swell with pride. The line is the brainchild of Anne Hanson, a knitwear designer who continuously works with small farms and mills to create well-performing luxury yarns made with natural fibers. The boutique carries the entire line of Knitspot patterns and Bare Naked Wools yarn, including occasional limited edition offerings.
We are located at the Lower Lower West entrance on Carmen Court between Logan & Harvard. If you can’t make it to our regular business hours, please call or email us and we’ll arrange an appointment time for you to view our line of natural yarns. Our online shop is open 24/7.
We now offer monthly knitting classes (see offerings and registerhere) plus finishing and commissioned services. Get that sweater seamed, shawl blocked, or buttons attached to a garment. See our entire menu here. Objects can be dropped off in person or mailed!
The boutique offers an extra special experience by hosting knitting classes with designer Anne Hanson, or special events with guilds or groups of friends. Contact us directly if you are wanting a personal fiber experience.
We Love Design!
Knitspot owner and designer Anne Hanson, a life-long knitter with experience in the fashion and graphic design fields, enjoys an ongoing conversation with users, incorporating customer feedback into knitspot products wherever possible. Anne also teaches and writes about knitting, spinning, and designing in her “knit spot”, and lives in ohio with David, who loves wool, too.
Anne’s background as a patternmaker/draper, technical designer, and costumer in New York City’s garment district informs her work, providing a rich source of experience in garment construction and fit, as well as knowledge of a wide range of fibers and fabrics.
Our most important concern at Knitspot is to provide user-friendly instructions for beautiful handknit designs. We offer fun and interesting patterns of all types and ability levels. In most cases, our patterns feature both written and charted instructions, with detailed explanations of technique. Many are appropriate for use as teaching tools; please use our Contact Form to inquire about use of patterns in classes and workshops.
A very special and important aspect of our business is our program of recycling dollars back into the general fund for doing good in the world. Each month we send 10% of knitspot proceeds to an organization committed to world improvement. We focus on non-religious organizations which keep administrative costs to a minimum, in order that more dollars reach those most in need.
