Item details

This yarn was inspired by the Doctor Who episode "Vincent and the Doctor." Easily the greatest Who episode of all time. In it Vincent Van Gogh says, "Look at the sky. It's not dark and black and without character. The black is, in fact deep blue. And over there: lighter blue and blowing through the blues and blackness the winds swirling through the air and then shining, burning, bursting through: the stars!"

This sparkly beauty is in honor of Mr. Van Gogh and the universe as seen through his haunted yet amazing eyes.

This yarn shimmers and glitters! Spun into the yarn is stellina, fine tinsel-like fibers that don't effect the yarn in any negative ways or make it any less soft (and it's so soft!)

(Pictures taken in 2 different rooms to show how it looks/shimmers differently in different light.)

**This listing is made to order. I try to recreate each colorway to the best of my ability to make each one as perfect as the last, but small variances do happen. Usually they're for the better though :)
