At the age of 21, the cosmopolitan artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser defended himself against a general fashion dictation. From 1949 on he always tried to escape this imposed dictation, especially by an individual design of his clothes, his second skin, as he called it. Because of this, Hundertwasser designed his own clothes over decades. This way, unmistakable creations were formed. Later they called them “creative clothing”.

Frederic Zwerger is a great admirer of Friedensreich Hundertwasser, that’s why he designed this socks yarn collection in 2006. With the balls of this unique collection, you are able to knit patterns which are in color and form modeled on some masterpieces of Hundertwasser. Those new stunning colors and fresh patterns should not only underpin the fun of knitting and crochet as a relaxing and meaningful leisure activity, it should also encourage to show off a little more individuality and extravagance, as definded by the artist who died in 2000.
