    For stargazers and moon worshipers, we have created the yarn ORION - inspired by the subtle shades of the Orion Nebula in the constellation of the same name.  This generous ball of extrafine merino wool is reminiscent of a lofty cloud, and it flies off the needles like a shooting star in the night sky, thanks to a chunky needle size of US 10.5 (6mm) needle. The Orion Punto 61 pattern collection has 22 patterns including sweaters, including pullovers and cardigans; hats and a headband; as well as scarves, shawls, cowls and fingerless mitts.  You'll enjoy knitting and wearing this light as air yarn!
