Not only are ArtYarns’ products a true knitting luxury (such beautiful, elegant yarns and patterns!), but the company is also something truly special. Not every company goes out of their way to help yarn shops select the best products for their unique customers but, in this case, the owner of ArtYarns herself (Iris Schreier) spent extra time with us to help us determine what yarns and patterns were best suited for our location and customers. The result is yarns and projects we know you’ll love!

Happy Valentine’s Day, and happy knitting!
