Gum Blossom Yarns
Luxury Yarn Kit 6
Originally I created these kits for the "ImpressionistMKAL" by Helen Stewart from Curious Handmade beginning March 31.
The colours in each kit reflect the "plein air" painting colours used by impressionist painters such as Monet, Manet, Degas and Vincent Van Gogh. Australia had its own impressionist painters, from the "Heidelberg School" including Arthur Streeton, Tom Roberts, Fred McCubbin and Margaret Preston.
These painters chose to move and paint with their easels outside in Nature, using a lot of natural light and hand-ground colours to depict ordinary scenes and memorable landscapes.
These yarns are also straight from Nature to your palette, to "paint" any of your shawls as you wish, using Australian colours.
Each luxurious Yarn Kit contains three skeins (107g, 373m) and at least one of a 4 ply fingering Merino: Silk skein and / or Merino:Cashmere skeins.
NOTE each kit is a one of a kind, as they are hand-painted yarns.
Yarn Kit 6 colour ways are:
- Gardenia Leaf speckled (Merino Cashmere)
- Gardenia Leaf (Sock)
- Indigo (Silk)
This kit is inspired by Vincent Van Gogh's paintings.
Australian customers please note that 10% GST is not included in the price and may be added during checkout.
