100% superwash Merino wool 2-ply fingering 400yds/100g

Hubble Space Telescope image that inspired this colorway:

In this close-up detail image of the Carina nebula, great clouds of cold hydrogen resemble summer afternoon thunderheads. They tower above the surface of a molecular cloud on the edge of the nebula. So-called "elephant trunk" pillars resist being heated and eaten away by blistering ultraviolet radiation from the nebula's brightest stars.

About this yarn:

Springy and plush, Skyward’s firm twist creates a durable sock yarn. 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 Colonial Blue, Gold, and Moss Green with 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 and also that skeins may appear to differ, even if from the same dyelot. 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.
