I saw the painting by Edward Hopper when visiting the museum as a pre-teen and it stuck with me as the epitome of urban, mod cool. I still associate that mood with Chicago.
Dye Technique: Adventure (speckle dyed)
Dye is applied directly to the skein allowing for pops of intense color. Colorways are repeatable but because of the way that the color is applied every skein is completely unique. At Destination Yarn we call these our “Adventure” colorways because creating one is an adventure!
Collection: Chicago Institute of Art
This colorway is designed to pair perfectly with Lake Michigan, Cassatt, and Chicago Lion.
