My Captain - Arcus #5
The colour story:
The beautiful inky blues of this colourway reminds me of the indigo blue of the coat of the dreamy Captain Wentworth from the Jane Austen novel Persuasion. The deep tonal blues make this a beautiful yarn on its own or as a coordinate with the other colourways in the Arcus #5 limited edition yarn.
As with all hand-made things, there is always some variation between skeins even within dyelots. If you plan to make a larger project, blend your skeins through transition rows.
The yarn story:
Arcus #5 is a soft and strong Shetland wool. It is not superwash and requires gentle handling during washing. It is of a medium softness but has good definition and solid wearability. Think here of jumpers, hats and cowls that perhaps also feature some colourwork but that will see some more challenging conditions.
Each skein weighs approximately 100g
