A frustration many serious knitters share is the lack of availability of beautiful, hand-dyed yarn - especially on the web. It's all very well buying hand-dyed yarn at knitting festivals, workshops and events but what most knitters want is to be able to buy quality, hand-dyed yarns from a local yarn store. Artyarns is the answer for many knitters as it is a producer of quality, hand-dyed yarns that are available in over 200 wool and knitting stores.
