The lesser known, younger brother of Vincent, Theo Van Gogh was the reason we know the genius that his brother had. An art dealer and stable support to his mentally ill but artistic brother, Theo made Vincent's life possible and supported his art from the beginning. He and his wife brought Vincent's art to the public and their family promoted it after his death. WIthout them, we would miss out on some of the world's greatest impressionistic art. This skein was an early version of my Vincent colorway, and while it was rich and beautiful, I perfected the recipe in the final version. This early batch of only two skeins is a one of a kind beauty, never to be recreated!
I use professional quality acid dyes to ensure vivid colors that will last. No two skeins are identical: if you need more than one skein for your project, be sure to alternate rows to ensure variegation. Please note that each skein is a unique work of art and may not exactly match the photos, but will be very close. I may reskein your yarn before shipping to avoid tangles if necessary.
