NEBULA on Sparkly Merino Sock Yarn

Regular price $27.00

Quantity Available: 2

Nebula was inspired by an amazing photo I saw from the Hubble Space Telescope of a distant nebula known only by a number. The colors of this place where stars are born was amazing. There was bright blue and mossy green, pink and mocha brown, chartreuse and deepest blue, sea foam green, soft lilac, and dramatic deep purple. I used all those colors to make this colorway.

I dyed this using my Splashed & Speckled method, so each skein will contain the same colors but in different areas, making each skein a unique creation.

I think this would make a fantastic striped shawl with sections of Nebula interspersed with various tonal colorways. Take a look at the Yarn Pairings section below for some ideas of tonal colorways to pair this with.

PROCESS AND PACKAGING
Each skein of yarn is spun or dyed by me with loving care and contains a label with the yarn facts shown above. Your yarn is wrapped in tissue paper and shipped promptly, making a great presentation if you are giving it as a gift to your favorite fiber artist--even if that happens to be you!

 
HANK OR CAKE
Unless otherwise specified, your yarn will come as a hank, which is basically a large loop. This is the best way to store yarn because there’s no tension being placed on it. Before you begin to use it, however, you will need to wind it into a ball or cake or you will end up with a tangled mess. The best way to do this is with a swift and ball winder. However, you can use the arms of a patient friend or just put your yarn over two dining chairs back to back and wind it into a ball by hand. If you don’t have a swift and you plan to use the yarn fairly soon, I would be happy to wind your yarn into a cake for you at no extra charge. Just mention it in your note to seller when you check out.
 
MY GIFT TO YOU
As a token of my appreciation, I would be happy to include your choice of either a sprig of fresh rosemary from my organic garden or a handmade felt ball infused with essential lavender oil with your order.  Both of these smell wonderful and are natural moth deterrents. Just let me know if you would like one and which one you would prefer in the note to seller when you check out.

Happy fiber artistry!
