  • Get inspired with Artyarns Inspirations!

    These are Limited Edition colours in some of our favourite Artyarns bases: Merino Cloud, Beaded Silk & Sequins Light, Double Mohair, 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.

    Jan 2022 is called "Carmel-by-the-Sea", inspired by sunsets at this small beach city on California's Monterey Peninsula.

    This colorway is hand-dyed as an ombré so that it will gradually evolve and stripe instead of pool. Hand-painted watercolour yarn, lovingly dyed by artisans with brushes.

    4. Ocean Street Rectangle Shawl designed by Danielle Courier: uses 1 skein of Double Mohair in Carmel by the Sea. Incorporating the Tuck Stitch which is a really simple way of creating a 3D effect in knitting and a great alternative to cables.

    5. Carmel By The Sea Pullover designed by Karen Damskey: uses 1 skein of Carmel in Cashmere Ombre 2 Ply, 1 skein of color 239 in Cashmere Ombre 2 ply, and 1 skein of Beaded Silk and Sequins in Carmel for size 42.

    PS - prices are for 1 skein of yarn. We often photograph more than one skein together so you get more "views" of the yarn, but unless you're buying a kit, each skein is sold individually.

    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.
