Imagine camping out under the stars atop a high mountain in summer time. You glance up at the sky and are overtaken by the beauty and wonder of the dark blue sky filled to bursting with starlight. That was the inspiration for this colorway.

I dyed it using an Ikat method, which means that there are short stripes of white on the dark navy background. If you knit with this yarn, you'll get one or two stitches of white amid the darker background, and the white looks a bit like stars.

I dyed Starlight on So Silky Sock, which is made of half superwash merino and half silk, and it's wonderfully soft and strong.
