100% superwash Merino single-ply DK 240yds/100g


Hubble Space Telescope image that inspired this colorway:
http://hubblesite.org/gallery/album/entire/pr1995024g/npp/all/

The Hubble Space Telescope provides a dramatically clear look at a collapsing disk of dust and gas that builds a star and provides the ingredients for a planetary system. What we can see from the images are blowtorch-like jets of hot gas funneled from deep within several embryonic systems, and machine-gun like bursts of material fired from the stars at speeds of a half-million miles per hour. For the first time we are seeing a newborn star close up — at the scale of our solar system — and probing the inner workings.

About this yarn:

Plush and radiant, Astronomer’s Dream is like a nebular cloud. Perfect for sweaters and hats, fingerless mitts and warm shawls, this superwash merino is a stable fiber of high quality which prevents pilling.

While this yarn is machine washable, hand washing fine yarns 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.

Please see my listings for other skeins in this dyelot.

All my yarns are hand-dyed one at a time, using high-quality, professional dyes in a non-smoking, pet-free home. You are buying the item 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.
