05/10/2020 - Sadly Fellview fibres has closed for a few days. I am working through orders as quickly as possible, due to the volume of orders, this is taking longer than normal. I apologize for this delay.  If you would like an update on when your order will be dispatched, please contact me at

Supernova Rolags - 100g

Only 2 left in stock


These rolags are based on the NASA photograph of the supernova Cassiopeia A. I put these rolags together as part of the first Sampler Box Club, where all of the colourways were based on images from Deep Space.

A supernova is a huge explosion caused when a star over 5 times bigger than our Sun runs out of fuel. The star then collapses. The collapse happens so quickly that it creates enormous shock waves that cause the outer part of the star to explode - leaving behind a nebula and possibly even a black hole. 

As you can see, the bright glowing clouds of the supernova of Cassiopeia A is a riot of colour. These rolags are made up of 21 micron merino in shades of red, blue and violet, with baby llama and lashings of golden and light green mulberry silk and Angelina.

The final collage photograph shows a true three ply yarn I made from only 3 Supernova rolags (100g normally has between 6-8 rolags). A light fingering weight yarn was produced, that I knit into an Alaska pattern hat.

The merino and baby llama in this blend will felt. If you do not wish them to felt, hand wash in cool water
