75/25% superwash Merino wool / nylon 4-ply fingering 463yds/100g

Hubble Space Telescope image that inspired this colorway:
http://hubblesite.org/gallery/album/pr2004030a/

On Earth, we witness a solar eclipse when our Moon's shadow sweeps across our planet's face as it passes in front of our Sun. Jupiter, however, has four moons roughly the same size as Earth's Moon. This image shows a rare alignment of three of Jupiter's largest moons – Io, Ganymede, and Callisto – across the planet's face. Seeing three shadows on Jupiter happens only about once or twice a decade. Jupiter appears in pastel colors in this photo because the observation was taken in near-infrared light.

About this yarn:

A round yarn with a soft, smooth hand, Momentum is equally at home in a cozy sock or an intricate cable. Featuring plush and soft merino wool, a dash of nylon adds strength and drape. Featuring generous yardage, this versatile 4-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 mint, periwinkle, and pink tones 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. 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.
