Scandinavians Arne Nerjordet and Carlos Zachrison are award-winning designers, textile artists and authors. They are best known for their original, colourful and visually striking designs as well as their craft books. Their work is highly influenced by their Scandinavian background and their everyday life in rural Norway. The duo have worked under the moniker "ARNE & CARLOS" since 2002. Learn more about ARNE & CARLOS on their website and their active YouTube channel.

Urban Yarns is proud to carry the entire range of ARNE & CARLOS's sock yarn collaborations with Schachenmayr Regia as well as their growing pattern and book offerings under Rowan Yarns. We also carry all of the yarns called for in the Rowan books; click on each book for its description, photos, and links to yarns used.

Watch this space for ARNE & CARLOS's independently published books such as 55 Christmas Balls to Knit, ARNE & CARLOS Field Guide to Knitted Birds, and ARNE & CARLOS Favorite Designs, coming soon to Urban Yarns!

Tickets are still available for Urban Yarns' ARNE & CARLOS lecture on Nov. 1, 2019, "The History of Norwegian Colour Work / Using the Old to Inspire the New", followed by a meet-and-greet and book signing!
