Our latest 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 relate to a greater or less degree to the season of the year and time they are released.
In addition, each month you can get (with purchase) one or more free patterns!
Both of the yarns we offer via this web page are Merino Cloud.
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.
The Rock Formations variegated skeins feature purple in every shade, inspired by exotic rock formations.
We also have an almost-solid contrast colorway, #351, a rich tonality of deep purple. (Sorry, sold out.)
With purchase of one or more of these you get your choice of any of the following patterns, emailed to you. Just let me know via the Comments section as you check out.
