We are delighted to introduce the next installment of the Artyarns Merino Cloud Inspiration Club!
Every two months we have been receiving a limited number of specially dyed Merino Cloud yarn from ArtYarns. The colors are limited edition and exclusive.
Each installment is a surprise, but will be in the spirit of the season, as you can see from the first photo on this page.
Plus! Each month your choice of free patterns! Read on for more details.....
This month we brought in two yarns, both dyed in this most special colorway.
Merino Cloud is a luxurious blend of Extra Fine Merino (80%) and Italian Cashmere (20%) with 437 yards per skein, it knits up as a fine fingering through to a sport weight depending on needle size. Perfect for scarves, shawls, and garments of all types.
Beaded Silk and Sequins Light is a light weight silk, embellished with a silk strand with clear beads and sequins. Add a wonderful touch of luxury to your project!
(This yarn is more expensive than the Merino Cloud and the cost you see added via the drop down menu is an addition to the base cost listed on this web page. In other words, the Merino Cloud is $38 each; a single skein of the Beaded Silk & Sequins Light ends up in your cart as $64.)
The special new and exclusive colorway for January is called Reflections. You can see the photo that inspired it on the top picture of this page.
To my eye, it looks like delicate birch trees in the forest. I see cream and gray, teal and green. The whole comes together most beautifully.
Right now we can offer your choice of four free patterns that were designed to go with this colorway. Some require one yarn, some require both, and some use a third almost-solid in a greenish-teal. We didn't bring in that last almost-solid, but bear in mind that any other fingering weight yarn in an almost-solid that works with these would also look very fine indeed.
Just let me know as you check out what pattern(s) you would like send to you and we will email you the PDF.
