As well as painting his moody, industrial cityscapes filled with matchstick men and women, Lowry also dabbled in portraits. This piercing 1938 self-portrait is one of the Salfordian's most well known, in it, his brown suit contrasts with the royal blue background, something I have replicated wonderfully in the dye pot.
This is a very durable yarn due to the addition of the 25% Nylon but keeps it's soft touch and natural elasticity as it contains 75% Merino. This is a strong and hard-wearing yarn and is perfect for cozy bed socks and super warm walking or ski socks. It is a standard DK yarn perfect for any DK project including sweaters, scarves and hats.
