  • Get inspired with Artyarns Inspirations!

    These are Limited Edition colours in our favourite Artyarns bases: Merino Cloud, Beaded Silk & Sequins Light, Double Mohair, Silk Day Dream, and for the first time ever - 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.

    July 2021 is called "Northern Lights", after the Aurora Borealis, an incredible natural phenomenon photographed here in the great state of Washington, and celebrated in all its glory with hand-painted watercolour yarn, lovingly dyed by artisans with brushes.

    Read more about each of the yarns and their characteristics here:

    Patterns will be emailed to you upon purchase*:

    1. Northern Lights Cowl by Danielle Courier: knit with one skein of Merino Cloud in Northern Lights (75" x 25") on 4.5mm (US 7) needles.

    2. Northern Lights Crescent Shawl by Iris Schreier: knit with one skein of Merino Cloud in Northern Lights (63" x 16") on 5mm (US 8) needles.

    3. Northern Lights Rectangle Wrap by Lucinda Iglesias: knit with one skein of Merino Cloud in Northern Lights and one skein of Merino Cloud in 378 Chartreuse.
    Size: 16” X 75”, 41 cm x 191 cm. Knit on 4.5mm (US 7) needles.

    Also photographed is Eccentricity by Xandy Peters which has been knit with 2 skeins of Merino Cloud in Northern Lights and one skein of Silk Mohair in 2386 Aruba. It would also be stunning with Silk Day Dream in place of Merino Cloud... 

    *If you're purchasing the Double Mohair, you'll also receive the 5 Pattern Compilation by Iris Schreier for this gorgeous yarn! And you'll get the exclusive One Armed Bandit pattern as well as 4 other cashmere patterns with your purchase of Cashmere Ombré 2 ply. 

    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.
