The Night Sky

When the Greeks looked at the stars in the sky, they didn’t just see the twinkling heavenly bodies. They saw patterns.   They saw familiar shapes. They saw tiny lights arranged in the form of people or creatures. By the fifth century BC, most of the constellations has been identified based on their relation to the Greeks’ myths. The International Astronomical Union has designated 88 modern constellations all tied to mythology.

Care of your hand knit garments  
Please hand wash cold or lukewarm water and lay flat to dry. Even though this yarn does contain superwash merino, I do always recommend that you hand wash your knitwear. We use colorfast acid dyes for dying our yarn, and rinse until water runs clear. There may be a chance that some dye may bleed slightly in the first wash of your finished item. This does sometimes happen for speckled yarn and stubborn colors that are prone to bleed. For the first couple of washes, hand wash separately to be sure that no further bleeding. 

There are no dye lots. We always try to sell from same dye lots but if not sure, we recommend blending the skeins as you work. Color saturation can differ from different dyelots.
