Sunflowers is, without doubt, one of Van Gogh's best-known paintings, this colourway is based on his 'Vase with fifteen sunflowers' which can be seen at the National Gallery in London. A sumptuous blend of yellows and oranges combine with a stem green in this beautiful representation of a true masterpiece.
This yarn is the best of British, made using 100% British wool and spun in a British mill, keeping the carbon footprint ultra-low. This yarn is enhanced using 35% Bluefaced Leicester to give it a soft and luxurious touch, making it the perfect yarn to wear next to your skin. The wool is combined with a smaller percentage of nylon giving the knitted fabric extra durability and strength making it harder wearing and ideal for socks and garments. One reason I love using this yarn is that it takes the dye really well which is perfect when creating bright colourways like this one.
