This yarn is inspired by abstract expressionist Mark Rothko's Seagram Murals, which were commissioned for the Four Seasons Hotel in New York, but when he found out that they wouldn't be seen by the masses, Rothko instead donated the paintings to the TATE Modern where they have been on display ever since. Similar to Rothko's style of layering and creating rich colours, this colourway is deep in colour and made from several layers of dye to create deep tones similar to those seen in Rothko's paintings.
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.
