Wine Stained - Arcus #5
The colour story:
A rich wine red that coordinates with all of the other Arcus #5 colourways. It's a bit softer than a true red wine colour, this is more the colour of red wine after it has soaked into your nice ecru table cloth.
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
