Marrons Glacés - Cumulus Sock
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:
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.
