This is Garden by David Hockney. I went to see the Hockney exhibition at Tate Britain in London a few years back and was wowed by the bright, vivid colours in many of Hockney’s pieces of art. I’ve tried to use as many of the tropical colours from the Garden panting in my yarn as possible making this a yarn that will brighten up any day.
This Peruvian yarn is a 4 ply made from 75% Superwash Merino wool and 25% nylon, which is soft to touch and won't be itchy next to the skin, whilst having elasticity. 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!
