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.
We will offer two versions of each kit - yarn only, and yarn plus a branded project bag with a cute little Gnome on it!. There will be a limited number of Gnome Kits with a Project Bag, so mark your calendar for the pre-order date and order early if you want one! Once they are gone, we will not be re-stocking the project bags.
Yarn Only Kits will ship within 2-3 business days.
International Orders will ship out first since they take longer in transit!
Please note that our kits DO NOT INCLUDE the ADVENTure Gnome pattern, which is only available through Imagined Landscapes.
To learn more about the ADVENTure Gnome, go to Imagined Landscapes website, where the pre-KAL information will be made available on November 1st!
While we make every effort to represent colours accurately, they may vary slightly when viewed on different monitors.

The inspiration for this asymmetric bias triangle shawl is the stunning landscape of Monument Valley, most of which lies in a Navajo Tribal Park in the Southwestern USA. In this area, majestic red rock canyons, pillars, and mesas rise out of the desert landscape, all over-seen by glorious blue skies. Hardy shrubs and trees endure the blowing sand that sculpts the landscape, and tumble weeds have plenty of room to roam. Garter stitch, slip stitch, mosaic, and some easy-to-work lace all combine to echo the elements of the landscape. This fun-to-knit shawl can be made in two different sizes and is easy to wear with many styling options!

Autumn is almost here, and what better way to kick it off than a fun Fall KAL, where you’ll knit yourself a cozy shawl to wrap up in! For the KAL we will be knitting this brand new shawl design and trying out lots of techniques along the way. This pattern will be released on September 18 so you have it in plenty of time for the KAL. It has two sizes. Size medium requires two skeins of Revival Fingering, one in a tonal colour and one variegated. Size large requires three skeins of Revival Fingering including two tonal and one variegated.

Making the most of Nettle Soft DK’s gorgeous drape and scintillating colours, this top-down shawl begins with a provisional cast-on that allows you to work the wide top lace border in one piece with the semi-circular centre.
Finished with a scalloped border of patterning that is worked on both right and wrong sides of the work, this shawl makes use of simple geometric patterning to balance and enhance the overall look.
Lemon Meringue Hat & Mittens by Moira Engel
The lovely set above is knit in the colourway Birch Leaves, but it would look smashing in any tonal or semi-solid.
Note: The pattern is only available in the magazine.
The hat & mittens come in three sizes, and you will require either 2 (2, 3) skeins if you make both pieces. If you knit only the hat, you will require one skein. A pair of mitts requires two skeins.
This three ply DK weight yarn is lusciously soft and bouncy, superbly durable, and pill resistant, making it perfect for warm and cozy accessories!
