Blue* - Astronaut - Superchunky Merino

Availability: translation missing: en.general.icons.icon_check_circle icon 5 in stock, ready to be shipped
PERSIA - the colourway name is called Persia. It is our oldest colourway at Countess Ablaze and from 2020 onwards, whenever anybody orders this and pays by PayPal, PayPal suspends our account pending investigation for "suspicious reasons." The colourway is called Persia as the yarn is blue-turquoise and turquoise the stone originates from Persia/Iran. So we're doctoring the name of the colourway of the listing because this a ridiculous situation.

Mill dyed yarns are more cost-effective than hand-dyed yarns as they're dyed on an industrial scale. Skeins within a batch are also more likely to be consistent so alternating skeins is optional.


Super chunky yarn is all the rage. Also known as Pencil Roving, this yarn can be used for knitting and crochet but you can also spin it. Check out this range of vibrant colours to compliment our hand-dyed The Space Cadet super chunky yarn.
