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 Diamond Silk Sock, which is an incredibly soft and strong luxury yarn base made of 100% mulberry silk. This is a great yarn base for those who are sensitive to wool. It is also tremendous for knitting and crocheting beautiful lacy shawls and for warp or weft as weaving. I would not recommend it by itself for sweaters or socks because silk does not have memory the way wool does.
