This variegated yarn is from Louisa Harding, her Pittura, 75% wool/ 25% viscose (which gives it a great sheen), and each is pre-wound with 437 yards (400m) per 100g disk. Each colorway of Pittura is based upon a classic art work, a painting usually.

We offer here two colorways:

1. One colorway is called Water Lilies, and I believe is based upon Monet's Water Lily series -- he painted hundreds of awesome pieces based on water lilies.  It is a gorgeous blend of mostly varying blues with violet and purple as well as a few streaks of gold and cream.

2. This colorway is based onthe painting by Fragonard called The Swing.  It is a melody of woodlands and forest, to my eye.  I see varying greens including lime, chartreuse, true green and evergreen, as well as some orange and amber and teal and cream and grey.
