Ever wondered what's right out there at the last reaches of space?

It's the Cosmic Microwave Background - landmark evidence of the Big Bang Theory! First discovered by pure accident in 1965 by American radio astronomers Arno Penzias and Robert Wilson (who later went on to win a Nobel prize in Physics for their work). While I couldn't really begin to explain what it actually is here (and really, you're already on the internet, why not look it up if you're interested?) I can tell you that when I think about it, the mottled colours of this yarn are what I see in my mind's eye.


This is a dyed to order listingAllow up to 14 days from the date of your order for your yarn to be dyed and dispatched. My schedule varies, so your order may take less time. If it's going to take longer than 14 days I will email you.

Please choose the base you'd like, and the number of skeins in the drop boxes.

All of my yarn is prepared and stored in a smoke and pet free environment.

Superwash wool can be machine washed on a delicates cycle at 30⁰c, but I would recommend hand washing and laying flat to dry. Do not machine wash non-superwash wool. I recommend hand washing in cool water with very little agitation and a gentle soap. Lay flat to dry.

I have done my best to accurately represent the true colour of the skeins with my pictures, but due to differences in screen settings, what you see may not be exactly the same shade as the pictures I’ve taken.

As with all hand dyed yarn, no two skeins will ever be identical. However, where possible I will send skeins from the same dye lot together. A little bit of colour run may happen in the first few washes, but this will be minimal.
