Akhenaten - Stratocumulus Sock

  • $28.00


The colour story:

Akhenaten was a pharaoh in the 18th Dynasty in Egypt, known especially for his devotion to the Aten, or disc of the sun. The disc was originally one of the manifestations of Ra, the sun god but Akhenaten focused on just this manifestation - a devotion to the rays of the sun. This colourway is all about the many golden colours of the sun. Bright lemony yellow, rich gold, Goldenrod yellow and many more swirl together to bring sunshine to your work.

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:

Stratocumulus Sock, a lovely high yardage 2 ply sock yarn made of 75% superwash merino wool and 25% nylon, this yarn is perfect for all types of projects thanks to the softness of the wool and the increased durability offered by the nylon. The two-ply construction offers nice stitch definition and is a lovely fine yarn.
