  • Get inspired with Artyarns Inspirations!

    These are Limited Edition colours in some of our favourite Artyarns bases: Merino Cloud and Double Mohair!

    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.

    "We thought it would be fun to put together this unlikely pairing of desert and lagoons with a lovely soothing colourway that has many popular colours for Spring, including pink, rose, mushroom, and blues with a hint of violet.  Every skein is lovingly dyed in Artyarns' unique ombre style, 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.
