School of Athens was inspired by the famous Renaissance painting by Raphael. The painting shows the great philosophers of ancient Greece dialoguing together. I included a photo of the painting as well. I dyed this yarn using my Splashed and Speckled method, which means each skein has the same colors but with different placement.
I dyed it on Sock Perfection, which is perfect for everything from socks to shawls to sweaters and beyond. It's made of extra-soft superwash merino and nylon.
School of Athens on Sock Perfection
450 yards / 3.5 oz / 4 plies
80% extra-soft superwash merino / 20% nylon
Care: Machine or hand wash cold and air dry.
School of Athens would look great with Rosy-Fingered Dawn, Annunciation Blue, Marigold, and Lilac.
I have included a couple photos of a hat I knit in this colorway. It should give you an idea of how the colorway will work up, but keep in mind that how it looks will vary a lot depending on the pattern you use and the yarn base as well.
