Three beautiful options
Imagine a cobblestoned street meandering down a steep hill, with thatched cottages lining on one side and a view across gentle green fields stretching out into the distance. It’s been raining and the soft grey and brown surfaces of the cobbles shine a gently where the late summer sun hits their edges, creating little shadows that define each one. A sudden breeze sends a flurry of leaves from a nearby tree skittering across them, rustling and twisting, until they slow and then stick to the damp stones, creating a collage of bright red and gold splodges against the muted hues of the cobbles beneath them. And in that instant, the feeling changes from the last moments late summer to the first hints of autumn, and brings all the cosy promises of the new season.
In my mind, I’m seeing Gold Hill, very near to where I used to live in the rural southwest of Britain. You may be seeing a street in New England or on the campus of a grand old university. Or imagining a scene from a much loved book, as real in your mind as any street you’ve walked in real life. Regardless, there is something beautiful in the change of seasons. And it was that tiniest of details – a few fallen leaves dancing across cobblestones – that sparked the inspiration for this beautiful colourway.
When it came to the coordinating colourway, we couldn’t help ourselves… and created two of them! For the first, Wet Cobblestones, we allowed those lovely grey and clay shades to take center stage. And for the second, Leaf Piles, we saturated the whole skein in the red and gold shades, creating all the rich hues of autumn leaves, and then created depth by dipping each one in a lovely charcoal grey. Use it to work as a contrast, as stripes, or in colour blocks.
Fiber Content: 100% Superwash Merino; 4-ply
Weight: Worsted; Each skein is approximately 3.5oz/100g, and the yarn contains approximately 230 yards per 100g
At SpaceCadet®, we passionately believe that knitting and crocheting make people happier deep down inside and that nothing does that more than working with gorgeous, vibrant yarn. For us, dyeing is a cosmic adventure -- a wonderful process of mixing each shade by hand from primaries and seeing where the colour takes us. The result is yarn that is as exciting for you as it is for us. Come with us and explore the farthest reaches of SpaceCadet® colour!
