Cinnabar - Cumulonimbus Incus Fingering

  • $37.00


The colour story:

Cinnabar is a stone (mercury sulfide) that is a rich rusty red that was once used to create pigments for painting beautiful reds and russets. Cinnabar is a nod to that warm rust stone that was so influential (and toxic) and brought lush colour to our forebears.

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:

Cumulonimbus Incus Sock is the slightly firmer, smoother cousin to Cumulonimbus. It is made from 45% silk and 55% superwash Bluefaced Leicester wool, producing a soft, strong and very smooth yarn. It is well suited to most project types and offers superior drape and sheen to your projects. It is strong enough to make luxurious socks and thanks to the BFL, has the durability for everyday garments such as sweaters, shawls, and other hug-able projects.
