  • Get inspired with Artyarns Inspirations!

    These are Limited Edition colours in some of our favourite Artyarns bases: Merino Cloud, Double Mohair, Beaded Silk & Sequins and ultra-lux Cashmere Ombré 2 ply!

    Every purchase includes exclusive patterns designed to bring out the yarn colours. Once a colour sells out it’s retired and will never be repeated.

    The Nov 2022 colour is called "Borrego Badlands". Based on a photo from this beautiful region of Southern California which was once under the ocean and includes a maze of hills and arroyos. 

    Artyarns have captured the deep, moody flavour of the area this this rich, multi-layered colourway: hints of greenish brown, rust, gold, grey-blue and majestic purple.

    This colorway is hand-painted in such a way that it is self-striping. Lovingly dyed by artisans with brushes.

    We recommend hand washing non-superwash, hand-dyed yarns.

    Although Artyarns are very consistent with their colourways, all hand-painted skeins are unique. If your project uses more than one skein, you may want to alternate / stripe the skeins.

    Block / wash in lukewarm water with some wool wash, and lay flat to dry. Artyarns set their dyes with steaming and thoroughly rinsing but differing water temperatures and chemicals can cause some dye to bleed in any yarn.

    If you're pairing light and dark colours, we recommend washing your swatch first to test for colour-fastness.
