Marrons Glacés - Altostratus DK
The colour story:
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.
The yarn story:
The super versatile yarn for all your medium weight needs. Made from 100% superwash merino wool, it has a nice amount of twist and pleasant bounce. This a lovely, versatile yarn that provides great stitch definition and reasonable wear so it's perfect for larger projects like sweaters and shawls - especially if there is a bit of lace involved.
Each skein weighs approximately 100g
