Pittura, meaning "painting" in Italian, is a colourful blend of wool and viscose, in marled, variegated colors. The colourways are named after beloved artists - among them: Kahlo, Klimt, and Matisse. Pittura's playful variegation will let you create your own masterpiece!
This is a fingering weight single-ply yarn in a 75% wool and 25% viscose blend. It is soft and shiny with a wonderful drape and lends itself to shawls and accessories with any sort of texture, from ephemeral lace to solid garter stitch. Each 100g ball has an amazing 400m.
