  • Get inspired with Artyarns Inspirations!

    These are Limited Edition colours in our favourite Artyarns bases: Merino Cloud, Beaded Silk & Sequins Light, Double Mohair and Silk Day Dream! 

    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.

    April 2021 is called "Rainbow Mountain", and is inspired by Rainbow Mountain in Peru: an incredible natural phenomenon in the Andes of Peru, celebrated in all its glory with hand-painted watercolour yarn, 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.
