I live on Exmoor which is a designated international dark sky reserve; the reserves are classified as public or private areas that possess an exceptional quality of starry nights
Catalina Comet is the third blanket of my Exmoor Stars series, which celebrates our very dark night skies
It is inspired by the Catalina Comet that passed over the earth (& the moor) during the winter months of 2015/2016
Catalina Comet is made with 1500 x gms of 4 ply/fingering weight Yarn (360/400 metre’s per 100 gms)
Catalina Comet is a scrap blanket; you will need assortments of very similar colours in colour collections.
Yarns used in the sample blanket include …
Easyknits - Splendour, Cherish. Skein Queen - Selkino, Lustrous, Luminosity, Oasis Grande
The Little Grey Sheep – Stein 4 ply, Gotland 4 ply. Fyberspates - Vivacious 4 ply, Scrumptious 4 ply
The essential ingredient is at least 1 skein of John Arbon Textiles Exmoor Sock (Midnight), John’s Exmoor sock is made with Exmoor Blueface sheep which live on the moor.
