75/20/5% SW Merino/Silk/Stellina Laceweight. 875yds/100g

Hubble Space Telescope image that inspired this colorway:
http://hubblesite.org/gallery/album/pr2001028c/

This NASA Hubble Space Telescope image reveals a bubble rising from the core of the galaxy NGC 3079. The structure is more than 3,000 light-years wide and rises 3,500 light-years above the galaxy's disk. Astronomers suspect that the bubble is being blown by "winds" (high-speed streams of particles) released during a burst of star formation. Gaseous filaments at the top of the bubble are whirling around in a vortex and are being expelled into space. Eventually, this gas will rain down upon the galaxy's disk where it may collide with gas clouds, compress them, and form a new generation of stars.

About this yarn:

Starfield Lace is an especially space-age fiber blend, featuring soft, springy merino wool, lovely and luscious silk, and a splash of starlight (stellina)! Stellina is a non-metallic shiny thread that is soft and pliable. The generous yardage is ideal for shawls and scarves, and the added bling of the stellina will make your piece sparkle.

While this yarn is machine washable in cold water, hand washing can extend the life of the garment. Lay flat to dry.

This colorway is available as a custom order. Note that all my yarns are hand-dyed and no two skeins are the same, despite similarities.

This item is multi-colored in green, red, and lemon-lime tones. This listing is for one 100g skein in the colorway shown in the picture. The yarn is shown before and after re-skeining so you have a better idea of how this item will look knitted/crocheted. I take pictures that represent the color/texture of the item as accurately as I can. Please remember that monitors vary in how they render colors. If you have any questions, I welcome your conversation.

All my yarns are hand-dyed one at a time, using high-quality, professional dyes in a non-smoking, pet-free home.
