Desert Radio: Knit up something natty to keep you cozy as you broadcast from deep in the misty purple desert. After all, who knows if that intern is going to still be around to bring you coffee, and who else will defend the name of your show?

Astral Yarn Base: Love glitter? Adore bling? This is the yarn for you. A subtle silvery gleam shines from this 2-ply lace weight yarn. 75% Superwash Merino for softness, 20% Silk for sheen, and 5% Stellina (a non-metallic fiber) for that sparkling glow. 875 yards per 100 gram skein.


This is small-batch, hand dyed yarn. Skeins of one dye lot were dyed together, but will have natural variations. I recommend alternating skeins if you are making a project that takes more than one skein of yarn. Colors on your monitor may or may not accurately portray the yarn color, since individual monitors may display color differently from Real Life. Up to 4 skeins in any one dye lot.

I highly recommend hand washing your finished project in cool water and then laying flat to dry. As thorough as I am with rinsing, some color can escape for the first wash or two. Wash alone, or at least with like colors.

Home Environment:
This yarn is from a smoke-free home, but I do have pets. A random cat or dog hair may accompany your yarn, although I try to prevent it.
