Marrons Glacés - Pyrocumulus 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, flashing with silver sparkle.
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:
Pyrocumulus Sock is a soft and sparkly sock yarn made from 75% superwash merino wool, 20% nylon and 5% silver stellina for a delicious sparkle. This yarn is perfect for projects that will be next to your skin because it is soft and, thanks the the nylon, has added strength to withstand wear. The sparkle adds that little something extra.
