Hubble Space Telescope image that inspired this colorway:

Uranus is the seventh planet from the Sun. It has the third-largest planetary radius and fourth-largest planetary mass in the Solar System. Like the other giant planets, Uranus has a ring system, a magnetosphere, and numerous moons. The Uranian system has a unique configuration among the planets because its axis of rotation is tilted sideways, nearly into the plane of its revolution about the Sun. Its north and south poles therefore lie where most other planets have their equators. The wind speeds on Uranus can reach 250 meters per second (900 km/h, 560 mph).

About this yarn:

Cassiopeia is an 80/20 blend of springy merino with lovely, luscious silk. The fibers are well-combed and spun with a gentle twist for the right stability in these two lovely fibers. According to Greek myth, Cassiopeia was a queen, renowned for her beauty and this laceweight offering certainly lives up to its namesake. This 2-ply yarn creates beautiful drape in the knitted fabric, with the added warmth and softness of merino wool. If you love silk shawls and scarves, you'll love knitting with this wonderful silk blend.

Hand wash gently in cold water. Do not wring. 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 semi-solid in cadet and indigo blue tones with a range of intermediate colors. This listing is for one 100g skein in the colorway shown in the picture. The skein is shown before and after re-skeining, so you have a better idea of how the yarn will 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.
