There just isn't anything like wool. From blends like our suri alpaca and merino wool yarn to the pure, funky simplicity of 100% Wool yarn from Malabrigo, the variety and diversity of wool yarn always amazes us. We're always looking for new and interesting wool yarns. Please let us know if you're looking for something we have yet to experience in woolyarns!
A quick list of our fabulous wool yarns - but do a search - we add more all the time!
From Artyarns Regal Silk Yarn to totally Luxurious Silk Mohair Yarn and of course, their incredible handpainted Cashmere yarn, in both lace and worsted weight, it's almost impossible to describe the beauty of Artyarns. For us, Artyarns is the ultimate in luxury handpainted yarns; and while these yarns do not come cheap, the exquisite craftsmanship, high-quality fiber, and unusual colors completely justify spending a little extra for a luxury yarn of this class. The way they knit up so delightfully, with the colors blending gracefully, and the finished product really is a treasure. Working with them will spoil you forever - so be forewarned! This yarn is very addictive. We have no qualms about converting everyone to the Artyarns Fanclub. In addition, there is terrific pattern support, a very active FACEBOOK community and great groups at Ravelry AND Yahoo for Artyarns lovers and lovers of modular knitting, which is an Artyarns specialty!)
There are wool yarns, and there are wool yarns. From handpainted 100% merino wool, to our Wool/Acrylic blends, we try to bring you the most interesting yarns in the universe.
We don't select our yarns based on 100% wool purity, we are not yarn-snobs. Some people are absolutely and totally allergic to Wool Yarn in it's purest form, and so we try and stock a range of wool yarn types, from our tightly spun Artyarns Supermerino wool, to our loose and soft handspun and kettle dyed thick and thin wool from uruguay.
Wool Yarn Blends
Many of the yarns we've labeled Wool yarn are blends. We try and pick wool yarns that are a good combination of wool fiber content, and value. Of course, we often go for total extravagance, mostly, I mean, how else can you justify a 20$ skein of yarn! But, we also try and stock interesting and beautiful yarn at $5.00 a skein.
