Crab Nebula was created by Joseph. He used a beautiful photograph of the nebula from the Hubble Space Telescope to create first art batts and now yarn.
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.We used my Sparkly Merino Sock base, which is made of 92% superwash merino and 8% sparkly lurex. It's a lovely base for shawls and cowls and hats.

409 yards / 4 oz / 4 plies

Crab Nebula would look great with Lilac, Eggplant, and Brilliant Blue.
I have included a couple photos of a hat I knit using Crab Nebula on Wonderful Worsted to give you an idea of how it can work up.
