100% superwash Merino 3-ply light fingering 490yds/100g

Hubble Space Telescope image that inspired this colorway:

A massive star is illuminating this small region, called M43, and sculpting the landscape of dust and gas. Astronomers call the area a miniature Orion Nebula because of its small size and the single star that is shaping it. This image is part of an extensive study of the Orion region that took 105 Hubble orbits to complete. All imaging instruments aboard the telescope were used simultaneously to complete the study. The Orion Nebula is 1,500 light-years away in the direction of the constellation of the same name.

About this yarn:

A round yarn with a soft, smooth hand, Lightyears LF is equally at home in a cozy sock or an intricate cable. Featuring generous yardage, this versatile 3-ply yarn also creates luscious tees, shawls, and scarves.

While this yarn is machine washable in cold, 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 pink, mauve, and red tones with sunny yellow highlights, dark orchid lowlights, and a range of intermediate colors. 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 can have a better idea how it will look when 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.
