Fauvism

Fauvism

The Staycation Collection is the second half of a new line of capsule collection yarns, dyed over our favourite bases.  Travel is something the Yarn Unique family loves, and whilst there is so much of the world yet to explore, some of the places we have been to have both amazed me, and stuck with me long after we left.  What began as a collection to celebrate some of our most memorable ‘Staycations’ in the UK quickly evolved into a dual collection where our ‘Vacations’ further afield were also immortalised into yarn!

 

The first edition of the Staycation Collection is taken from my most recent trip, a wonderful holiday exploring parts of France’s Languedoc and Roussillon region, specifically focusing on the delightful town of Collioure.  A colourful and vibrant town nestled between the Pyrenes and the Med, surrounded by terraced vineyards and overlooked by hilltop castles. 

 

'Fauvism' is a colourful variegated colourway with colours from the town running through, with warm greens, golds, terracotta's and pinks with the odd splash of aqua blue. Fauvism was an art movement which developed in 1905 following a summer of painting the beautiful scenery of Collioure, with many of these tones and shades spotted through the body of work, at that time, of Matisse and Derain.

 

Available in multiple bases, with each showing the colourway off in perfect uniqueness, you will find the ideal luxury yarn to suit your needs here:
