The the inspiration for this soft blend comes from two different paintings. 

The first painting is by a Hungarian painter called Janos Tornyai. It is called ‘Winter Landscape with Violet Lights’, and was painted about 1910. It is thought to be one of many paintings that he made with the Great Plains of Hungary being the subject.

The second painting is called ‘Arctic Ocean’ by Konstantin Korovin. Korovin is considered by many as Russia’s greatest impressionist painter. This painting was probably composed during his 1894 trip to Finland, Norway and Northern Russia that was financed by a railway magnate.

Both paintings are based on such cold subjects, but have soft, inviting colours. I decided to put together a warm blend that would keep you warm during any winter excursion.

The 150g Winter Lights gradient is made from a blend of 2/3 merino and 1/3 baby alpaca – the alpaca fibre being approximately eight times warmer than wool. The alpaca also has a longer staple length than the merino, which in my opinion, makes the blend easier to spin.

This blend will felt. If you do not wish it to, hand wash in cool water.
