Nebula Miniskein Set Alpha - Electron Sock

Write a Review

Expected ship date is Jun 28th 2019

Want to sample the Nebula colorways without getting a whole skein of each one? Have an awesome project in mind for a miniskein set that would be even more spectacular with out of this world yarn? This is the Alpha set of Nebula miniskeins, and it will let you visit some iconic nebulae and is perfect for stripes or pairing with a semisolid yarn for a squishy shawl that is out of this world. This listing is dyed on the Electron Sock base, which does not have sparkly stellina in it-- if you want these same colors in sparkle, look for the Star Stuff Sock Nebula Miniskein set Alpha.

Nebulae included: Veil, Butterfly, Spider, Ring, and Horsehead

Electron sock: 80% SW Merino/20% Nylon

20g/80 yards per miniskein

100g/400 yards total

Nebula colorways are inspired by the grand things going on far beyond our own planet and solar system. A mix of hand-painting and kettle dyeing, each batch comes out a little bit differently and some are more consistent than others; note the Colorway Repeatability indicator below. If you want the best chance at skeins that play well together, please order all you need for your project at one time. I recommend alternating skeins for large projects. 

Colorway repeatability: Hypothesis


Mad science colorways are one of a kind (OOAK), unique, and may never appear again exactly as you see them now. Everything with Experiment or OOAK in the name is a non-repeatable Mad Science colorway.

Hypothesis colorways are somewhat repeatable but can vary quite a bit from batch to batch. Colorways I'm tweaking and refining are Hypothesis colorways, as are some colorways that have recipes but are too variable to be considered Theories, such as Nebula colorways.

Theory colorways are dialed-in recipes that are as repeatable as they come here at EFW. Most of the Elements Collection will end up as Theory colorways as they are developed and pass through testing.


I only include pictures that I think accurately represent the colors of the fiber or yarn, but differences in computer monitors mean my photos may not be 100% accurate. I accept returns of items in original condition within 30 days of purchase; see the Shipping & Returns page for more information.
