Dark Skies Blue DK
Our Dark Skies Blue Exmoor Horn quality DK wool is the very image of our moorland after dark, with village street lighting at a minimum and vast open unlit spaces. Exmoor National Park was designated Europe’s first International Dark Sky Reserve in autumn 2011, in recognition of its work to keep light pollution levels very low. It is one of the few places in England where it is still possible to marvel at the wonders of the night sky. Low population density coupled with deep valleys, high cliffs and wide open moorland all contribute to being able to see amazing starry nights, which you won’t find elsewhere. A moonlit night sky has the colour of our blue here.
This is an example of what our wool can do – a fabulous men’s pullover with double moss stitch panels and arms. The pattern is HAYFIELD DK 9903. If you would like this pattern, but it is unavailable, discontinued or out-of-print, and you cannot get it on ebay, then we would be happy to let you have a copy.
