If I have worked my magic on the website then the spare Merino & Silk fibre from each 12 Days of Christmas parcel will be going in the online shop each day. This is the same base as all the other Superfine Merino & Silk fibre that's available, so you can mix and match with any other colour that's in stock, and also benefit from the same offer of "Buy any 2 and get the 3rd half price".
The whole range of fibre is available here.
The fibre this year has a theme of the Stars. In the northern hemisphere, at this darkest time of the year starlight can feel magical. Humanity has always looked to the heavens, and created stories around the patterns that they can see from these glowing balls of gas so far away from our own little planet.
If you fancy trying to find the stars linked to the fibre then there are some great apps that use the camera in your phone, assisted reality, and the internal compass to help you identify where to look.
We have already encountered Andromeda, the chained maiden. She was the one sacrificed by her father King Cepheus to the sea monster Cetus. Thankfully for Andromeda she was rescued by Perseus. The tale depicts her as being the paragon of the Greek ideals of femininity, at first being too shy to even answer Perseus, and refusing to say why she was chained to the rock. Despite her impending doom Perseus even has time to ask her parents for her hand in marriage should he slay Cetus, which he duly did.
Andromeda and Perseus do marry and have six children. The goddess Athena placed her image in the skies, where she lies next to Perseus, and only separated from Cetus by the constellation Pisces.
