80/10/10 superwash Merino/Cashmere/Nylon 4-ply fingering 435yds/100g

The galaxy M82 is remarkable for its bright blue disk, webs of shredded clouds, and fiery-looking plumes of glowing hydrogen blasting out of its central regions. Throughout the galaxy's center, young stars are being born 10 times faster than they are inside our entire Milky Way Galaxy. The fierce galactic superwind generated from these stars compresses enough gas to make millions of more stars. Located 12 million light-years away, M82 appears high in the northern spring sky in the direction of the constellation Ursa Major, the Great Bear.

About this yarn:

Zero-g DK is an 80/10/10 blend of Merino/Cashmere/Nylon. The cashmere is cloud-soft, the merino springy and plush, and the nylon adds strength into the yarn. The fibers are well-combed to prevent pilling. The result is like floating in zero gravity.

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

This item is primarily red and turquoise with a range of intermediate colors. This listing is for one 100g skein in the colorway shown. The yarn is shown before and after re-skeining so you can have an idea of how it might 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.
