Crab Nebula was inspired by a beautiful photograph of the nebula from the Hubble Space Telescope.
The colors are so beautiful together--just the right blend of soft and bright. They include a little soft yellow, fuchsia, lavender, eggplant, several shades of blue, and bright chartreuse to add a little pop.
I dyed this yarn using my Splashed and Speckled method on Wonderful Worsted, which is a squishy and round 4-ply yarn made of 100% superwash merino. It's great for sweaters, shawls, hats, and more.
Crab Nebula on Wonderful Worsted
218 yards / 3.5 ounces / 4 plies
100% superwash merino wool
Care: Machine or hand wash cold and air dry
Crab Nebula would look great with Eggplant, Margarita, and all my blue colorways.
I have included a couple photos of a hat I knit using this yarn to give you an idea of how it can work up.
