A machine washable wool blend sock yarn with a unique collection of colors inspired by the art work of Friedensreich Hundertwasser, an Austrian painter and sculptor.
Hundertwasser often rejected simple symmetry and straight lines in his work and favored bright colors, organic forms, a reconciliation of humans with nature, and a strong individualism. There is much much more but I am still learning about his work so I will let you explore on your own.
In addition to his amazing creativity and beautiful range of work in color and texture I appreciate Hundertwasser for his position on socks (as reported by others) - when asked why he was wearing two different socks he always asked "...and, why are you wearing two of the same?" Wish we could have met him.

Yardage: 463 Yards in each 100 gram skein (one skein is sufficient for most socks).
