July ArtYarns+ Review: A fairytale finish.

"How lucky am I to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard" 
-Winnie the Pooh

It is with a heavy heart that we are reviewing Yarnbox Plus, featuring Art Yarns, for the last time. If you missed this shipment you can go to our website on the 1st of August and get it from our overstock store.  Over the history of Yarbox Plus we have shipped out 5 boxes containing the most luxurious yarns from Art Yarns and it has been a Joy to work with Iris Schreier, but like all good things it must come to an end to make room for new yarns and designers. We have a few pokers in the coals and are working diligently to create a new collection for you and as soon as we have that available we will make that public. However, for now, let us clink our glasses and toast to a good run.

When you were you a kid, did you ever rummage thru your mom's jewelry box, pull out all the sparkly pretties and pretend you were a princess? Well pretend no longer, because with the help of Yarnbox and Art Yarns, you too can feel like royalty with these jewel toned beauties. 

Silk Essence is a single ply 100% silk yarn with a drape and feel fit for a queen! Art Yarns own Iris Schreier has taken her normally variegated silk yarn and broken it down in 5 mini gradient skeins of 130 yards each, which is 650 yards total.

The colors are a tonal gradient on 100% silk. YUM!

 From left to right we present: Lapis, Peridot, and Ruby. (Makes me think of Stephen Universe) 

With this gradient set, Iris has designed for us a special lace piece of repeating diamond patterns, that highlights the jewel tones. The Silken Transitions Shawl munificently compliments the texture and color of this yarn. I think I even have space in my jewelery box to keep this once I am bound off. 

This is also a transition that brings us to the storybook ending of this box. We thank you for subscribing and we urge you to sign up for our other boxes on our website at www.yarnbox.com/order/
