Cronus was god of time and the Head Titan
Cronus seized power from his father, Uranus, by castrating him and becoming ruler of the universe during the mythological Golden Age. See our colorway Cronus' Victory for the story of how his mother, Gaia, helped Cronus.
Cronus and his sister Rhea took the throne as King and Queen. They had many children together, big time cornerstones like Poseidon, Hades, Hera, Hestia, and Demeter. Cronus learned that one of his children was prophesied to overthrow him. As soon as each kid was born, he swallowed them. But when Zeus was born, his mother Gaia and wife Rhea tricked him into swallowing a stone. Zeus was hidden away to grow up safe but to return forcing his father to vomit up all his brothers and sisters.
Cronus is a variegated base of red, blue-grey and purple.

Care of your hand knit garments
Please hand wash cold or lukewarm water and lay flat to dry. Even though this yarn does contain superwash merino, I do always recommend that you hand wash your knitwear. We use colorfast acid dyes for dying our yarn, and rinse until water runs clear. There may be a chance that some dye may bleed slightly in the first wash of your finished item. This does sometimes happen for speckled yarn and stubborn colors that are prone to bleed. For the first couple of washes, hand wash separately to be sure that no further bleeding.
There are no dye lots. We always try to sell from same dye lots but if not sure, we recommend blending the skeins as you work. Color saturation can differ from different dyelots.
