Damien Hirst is perhaps best known for his formaldehyde animals of the 1990s but his work spans a myriad of styles and techniques. I connect most with his paintings, so have created a range of yarn based on his eclectic paintworks.
This is Beautiful C Painting from his spin painting series. When looking through Hirst’s work, the colour palette of this painting in particular jumped out at me. His use of complementary colours make such a bold statement and I love the spin technique he used on this series of paintings. The colours blend in such a unique way, which translates brilliantly to yarn.
This is made from fully traceable organically grown fleece, the finest produced from the Falkland Islands, South Atlantic.
100% Superwash Merino - A standard 4 ply made from 100% Superwash Merino wool that is soft to touch and won't be itchy next to the skin. The fibers have been specially treated before being spun to enable it to be machine washable, therefore it will not ‘felt’ when washed, it is a great easy-care yarn - but please be gentle with your hand knits!
80% Superwash Merino, 20% Nylon - This extra robust superwash sock DK is made from 80% Superwash Merino and 20% Nylon, making it extra durable and suitable for a wide range of garments including socks, sweaters and hats; it's very durable whilst remaining super soft to the touch, so ideal to be worn next to your skin.
