I found the inspiration for this yarn from a print of Raphael's "Madonna of the Chair" that we have. I included the painting as the last photo.
The colors are deep and rich, and I emulated them in the yarn. They include black, olive, deep peach, tan, blue, dusty green, brownish orange, and rich gold. Apparently, Raphael stopped by an inn one day and discovered he had no money when it came time to pay, so he asked to pay with a painting. He painted this on the lid of a barrel.BATT FACTS

It also has a label to let you know what it's made of for future reference. This makes a great presentation if you are giving art batts as a gift to your favorite spinner or felter as well.
MY GIFT TO YOU
Also, as a token of my appreciation, I would be happy to include your choice of either a sprig of fresh rosemary from my organic garden or a handmade felt ball infused with essential lavender oil with your order. Both of these smell wonderful and are natural moth deterrents. Just let me know if you would like one and which one you would prefer in the note to seller when you check out.
Happy fiber artistry!
