This is Portrait of Mada Primavesi by Gustav Klimt. Mada is the daughter of Eugenia, who features in another of Klimt’s paintings, and also one of my yarns. This painting is a different style to some of Klimt’s other portraits of women, I was drawn to the background, which is less outlandish than his other paintings, it is a simple pink background with Japanese influence. I’ve taken inspiration from this and layered up a variety of shades of pink within this cute yarn.
This is made from fully traceable organically grown fleece, the finest produced from the Falkland Islands, South Atlantic. A standard 4 ply made from 100% Superwash Merino wool which 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!
