I love this beautiful new colorway. It has a lot in common with Beautiful Universe, but it is a little lighter and brighter. It was inspired by the aurora borealis or Northern Lights. Some day I hope to see them in person!
I dyed this yarn using my Splashed and Speckled method, which means each skein has the same colors but with different placement.
I dyed it on my Buttery Soft DK base, which is made of 45% baby alpaca, 45% extra-soft 19.5 micron merino, and 10% silk, and it really lives up to its name!
Please note that this is NOT a superwash yarn. That means it can felt with agitation and changes in temperature, so it should be washed by hand in cool water unless you want to full the cloth.
