'We Are All Made Of Stars’. Astronomer Carl Sagan famously said “we are all made of star stuff”, echoing the theory that everyone and everything on earth contains minuscule star particles which date from the creation of the universe. If that isn’t a metaphor for unity and harmony on earth, then I don’t know what is!
Inspired by the Antares Nebula, and a re-vamp of my Nebula series from a few years back, this sock yarn is flecked through with white-only cotton blend tweed nubs,which looks like stars against the blackness of the night sky.
The black tones are actually a lot more varied than just plain black. They contain blue, brown, purple and grey tones, layered and melded together in the dye pot to create subtle variations, which swirl around the blue, plummy-purple and golden-ochre tones of the gas clouds.
It will make a lovely pair of socks/hat/scarf etc for the astronomer In your life. Maybe something to keep them toasty whilst watching the night sky?
Sock Tweed Base:
84% superwash merino wool, 16% cotton/acrylic nep. 100g = 425m (approx). Suggested needles 2.25-3.5mm.
Dyed with acid milling dye for colourfastness.

The neps can be a bit of a pain, but the base is delightfully soft and the dye is gorgeous.
