Famous for it’s chubby cherubs, Raphael uses pigments of malachite and lead from the renaissance period to bring bright blues, greens and reds to life, and really brighten up this painting. I've mixed my dyes to try and replicate some of the bright colours within this painting.
This Peruvian yarn is 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!
