BEAUTIFUL UNIVERSE on So Silky Sock

Regular price $32.00

I had the idea for this colorway and dyed it up but couldn't come up with a name, so I asked the wonderful people in the Purple Lamb Facebook page. The majority mentioned galaxies and nebulae, so I started going through Hubble Space Telescope photos, and they are amazing, but no particular space phenomena looked exactly right. Then I found the image included here, and that in combination with the Hubble photos inspired me to think just how astonishingly beautiful our universe is. Isn't it breathtaking? It could be dull, flat, and colorless, but instead it is a masterpiece!

I dyed this yarn on So Silky Sock, which is a lusciously soft yarn base made of half silk and half superwash merino. It's great for knitting and crochet, and it's also great for both warp and weft in weaving.

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.
