The Artful Yarn

. . . . celebrating peace, love and yarn!

The Artful Yarn makes a point of featuring yarns from companies owned by women or families, many of them from the United States. We support fair-wage, fair-trade companies and those that foster ethical treatment of animals and responsible disposal of dye. Many of our beautiful yarns are handcrafted in some way. Even our bags our made from recycled paper! It’s our way of standing up for a happy, healthy fiber world.

Join the Scoreboard KAL!

Scoreboard KAL

The Scoreboard Cowl is worked in the two (or three) colors of your favorite football team! Yarn colors coming in next week include the Browns, The Ohio State University, West Virginia University, and many other local colleges, universities and high schools including OU, John Carroll, Chagrin Falls, Chardon, Mayfield, Shaker Heights, Orange and many more!

The main color (MC) will always represent your favorite team and their points, while the secondary color (CC) will always represent your favorite team’s opponents and their points. There is also an option to add a third color, to provide a visual break line between games. Scoreboard KAL Online Badge
