Rosette Nebula - In Stock Yarn

Write a Review

Roses aren't always red-- if you take the typical narrow band color mapping of an image from the Hubble telescope and make some tweaks, you can find there are other stunning color combinations hiding in the skies. This particular Rosette nebula inspiration photo filtered hydrogen as green, sulfur as red, and oxygen as blue, instead of the more standard color mapping of hydrogen as red. Yarn base descriptions can be found below.

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.
