Joan Mitchell was an American abstract painter who spent much of her career living in France. Mitchell was one of the few female abstract artists of the era to gain public acclaim and her work has been displayed in major exhibitions in Europe and America. This colourway is based on Mitchell's 1976 work, Straw. With its evocative palette of goldenrod, cerulean, and evergreen, Straw is an exceptional embodiment of the rich surface textures and impassioned brushwork that define the artist's output from this glorious phase of her career.
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.
