Marrons Glacés - Cumulostratus DK
The colour story:
Marrons Glacés In the event a fresh chestnut, still warm from being roasted in a recycled oil drum and handed over in a newspaper cone, is not available a candied one is a very fine alternative. Reminiscent of the southern French delicacy, this colourway has hints of chestnut brown, plum-brown, gold and mauve on a creamy base to give a subtle and soft tone.
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.
