Cinnabar - Volutus Silk Lace
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. Tussah silk is naturally a soft beige colour and provides a muted undertone to all colourways on this yarn.
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:
Volutus Lace is a gorgeous, fine and luxurious 100% tussah silk yarn. This yarn will bring sheen and soft drape to your lace projects or can be held double with other fine yarns for a luxurious finished object. Please note that silk does not have any stitch memory and once blocked will not spring back so please block judiciously and handle gently while wet.
