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 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.

Northern Lights would look great with Eggplant, Dreams of the Sea, Burgundy Rose, Phantom of the Opera, and Annunciation Blue.
I knit up a hat using Northern Lights and Phantom of the Opera to give you an idea of how it can work up.
