Ancient Arts Yarn is an artisan hand dye company drawing our inspirations from nature, art, and our love of stories. We use only premium bases ethically sourced, ethically milled, and spun exclusively for us. Our yarns are ideal for knitting, crochet, weaving, and any other craft requiring a top-quality yarn. All yarns are individually hand dyed in small dye lots using environmentally conscious dyes and dyeing practices.

These mitts feature a Norwegian motif that has been embellished with bobbles for an extra dollop of whimsy! Worked with a gusseted thumb for comfortable wear, these mitts will keep your hands warm on crisp fall days, early spring walks, and summer evenings spent camping by the fire. For a quick gift idea, make an additional pair for friend with the colours reversed to keep their hands warm too!
With each unique colour of the month we have managed to travel around the world and explore some truly spectacular places! As amazing as that has been, we find that as the holiday season approaches there is no place we’d rather be than with friends and family sharing laughter, joy, and good cheer. Each skein of December’s festive limited edition colourway, Home, celebrates this shared planet we call earth by capturing the brilliant blues of the oceans, crisp white clouds, and the rich greens and browns of the land; and if you look closely you can even see Rudolph’s nose lighting the way for Santa’s sleigh as he travels the globe! Our hope for everyone this festive season is that no matter where you might be that it’s filled with love, joy and that it feels like home.
