80/20% superwash Merino/Nylon 2-ply fingering 400yds/100g

Hubble Space Telescope image that inspired this colorway:

The active galaxy NGC 1275 is also a well-known radio source (Perseus A) and a strong emitter of X-rays due to the presence of a black hole in the center of the galaxy. The behemoth also lies at the center of the cluster of galaxies known as the Perseus Cluster. The Cluster can be found roughly 230 million light-years away in the Constellation of Perseus.

About this yarn:

Springy and plush, Skyward’s firm twist creates a durable sock yarn, with a touch of nylon for added strength. This versatile 2-ply yarn is also brilliant for cherished tees, shawls, and scarves. The soft plies plump against one another, catching the light like stars in the sky.

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 red-violet and pink tones with navy lowlights and a range of intermediate colors. This listing is for one 100g skein in the colorway shown in the picture. 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.
