Cinnabar - Cumulus Sock
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:
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.
