Colinette Art yarn

 ART yarn from Colinette

It seems like many of my favourite yarns are now discontinued; Jaeger Extra Fine Merino, Rowan 4 Ply Soft and Noro Cash Iroha to name a few, not to mention the RYC line being shelved. It’s about time there was some good news from the yarn world, and there is, yay!

Colinette have introduced a new aran weight wool/bamboo blend, ART, that’s bursting with tweedy texture. Here’s what they say about it:

When starting from a palette over well over a hundred shades it seems only right that we would use ‘ART’ as the name for such a vibrant and versatile yarn. Made from a super soft wool and blended with an equally soft bamboo, ART is light agile and full bodied in it’s texture and colour.

Yes you read that right, over 100 shades! Dark Royal, Thunder,  Magenta and Ischina are on my wishlist – what will you choose?
