If you loved the coral top that Shelley wore in the Knit Stars video, here's the yarn! She used less than 6 skeins and size 10 needles to make the smallest version of "Andromeda" by Heather Dixon, available for download on ravelry.com. Stargazer Silk yarn is spun in Bihar, India where there is an exquisite history of silk textiles and yarns. The silk roving fibers are hand dyed and then loosely twisted and strung with silver-colored brass sequins. The hand dyeing process creates beautiful and subtle high and low color variations in this yarn. When knitted, the brass sequins add little weights throughout your knitting. This creates a finished piece with gorgeous drape that is totally unique. Knits beautifully in cowls, scarves and shawlettes too!
