“Fleece” is only ever attested with êu or ew; I would go for knew and not allow **knyw.

"In the KS document revision 15 it says that <yw> and <ew> appear to be in free variation in the texts in words like gwew, pew, ew, and gew 'woe'. We write these with <yw> , so knyw is  

correct in KS. Cf. Tregear's ew 'is' which we write <yw>.  The diphthong is [Iu]."
