New sponsor Artesano

We're thrilled to highlight our newest sponsor for GLYC 2014 - give a big welcome to Artesano.


Artesano is a relative newcomer to the UK yarn scene. They have a fantastic selection of yarns, covering the range from lace to aran and upwards. Their yarns include 100% alpaca, alpaca/silk and alpaca/wool blends, and 100% wool (including merino). We're particularly fond of their Superwash Merino DK weight for kids gear.


Their colours are lovely, and they've now introduced a glorious tweedy DK blend called Nebula, that includes alpaca, merino and Donegal. They've also got great pattern support. with a wide variety of choices for all of their yarns.


In addition to having their own yarn, Artesano is a distributor for Manos del Uruguay yarns, Brittany needles and crochet hooks, and KA Needles. You can find more information about their yarns and products on their Ravelry group, their Facebook page, and on Twitter.

For GLYC 2014, they've sent along a selection of mini skeins and fibre samples, so keep an eye in your goody bags for some of their gorgeous contributions. Thanks very much to Artesano for their support of GLYC 2014, and we're so glad to have them on board!
