Lerwick Harbour - Cumulus Sock
The colour story:
Truthfully, I've never been to Shetland. I did live in the East Neuk of Fife for several years when I was younger so I know the smell and moods of the North Sea but never *that* harbour. It doesn't mean I can't imagine a moody, deep and brooding harbour of dark and light teals, grey and black with flashes of foamy white in places and then make that into a colourway.
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:
Cumulus Sock, the yarn that gets the job done with grace and softness. Made of 80% superwash merino wool and 20% nylon, this yarn is perfect for all types of projects but most especially for socks. It is a soft and springy yarn with the strength of nylon giving it a lovely hand but durability too.
