On the advice of Cronus’s mother he castrated his father, Uranus with a sickle thus separating Heaven from Earth. Only Cronus was willing to do the deed, so Gaia gave him the sickle and placed him in ambush. When Uranus met with Gaia, Cronus attacked him with the sickle and castrated him. When it was all over his siblings were freed and the blood that fell onto the Earth from Uranus created the Gigantes, Erinyes and Meliae. The blood that fell into the sea created white foam from which the goddess Aphrodite emerged. He overthrew his father and now became the king of the Titans, Cronus and his sister Rhea took the throne as King and Queen.
Cronus is a speckled base of red, blue-grey and purple and yellow

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.
