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.


Shimmer DK is our 75% Superwash Merino, 20% Nylon, 5% Silver Stellina DK weight base. A subtle sparkle gives this lustruous sock yarn a little something extra. 212m/231yards per 100g
