This yarn is part of my artist collection, and it's one of my own favorites. It was inspired by Renoir's portrait, "Mademoiselle Irene Cahen d'Andvers." It was commissioned by the little girl's father. Here's a link to the painting.
The colors are mocha brown, forest green, thyme, ballet pink, a bit of red, a bit of dark blue, and a lot of very light blue with some yarn left white. There's also some lavender where colors combined. Because of the random nature of the colors, it isn't likely to pool. It also means that each skein is unique with the same colors but different placement of each color.
I used my Sparkly Merino Sock base this time, which is made of 92% superwash merino and 8% sparkly lurex. It's a lovely base for shawls and cowls and hats.

Renoir would look wonderful with Verdigris or Rosy-Fingered Dawn.
