We have received quite a few ArtFil yarns in many colours… you just have to come and see for yourself!
Camello is the most recent “Select” yarn from Rowan, which means that it will only be available for this year’s Fall / Winter season. It is composed of 68% Merino, 18% Camel and 14% Nylon, knits to a gauge of 28 stitches per 10cm and contains 175 meters per ball. As a bonus the patterns are free with purchase of the yarn.
My order of “Belle” by ArtFil has finally arrived. We have over 20 colours and 1 colour exclusive to Wool N’Things. It is great for socks because it contains nylon, but this merino/nylon fingering yarn can be used to knit anything you wish!
ArtFil is based in Laval, Quebec. They use an Eco-friendly method of dyeing yarn by using 80% less water and 60% less energy than the traditional dyeing method.
