Gold on Stones is part of the Skye Collection of colourways inspired by a magical trip to the Isle of Skye. I was drawn to the amazing yellow lichens on grey stones along the coast.
Historically the use of Scottish lichens in dyeing was so economically important that it gave rise to the saying, "cattle on the hills, gold on the stones".
This colourway incorporates golden yellows over a silver base with subtle grey speckles.
Merino Silk 4ply is an incredibly soft yarn, with a cosy high twist and a beautiful silken sheen. It works wonderfully for accessories.
