"Mostly Harmless"

To celebrate International Towel Day, I have spun this very special yarn. The basic yarn is a wool/alpaca blend hand dyed is shades ranging from midnight blue to intergalactic black. Included in this are various other fibres, like sari silk, angelina and angora, representing stars, nebulae, planets, and the various other features an intrepid galactic hitchhiker might encounter on his travels. the singles have been plied together with the cassette tape of the BBC recording of the Primary Phase of the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, and of course, a towel.

Imagine, if you will, a hat knit from this material - you would always know where your towel is and therefore be in control of your life, and enjoy all the benefits of having a towel, and there are no known reports of anyone wearing such a hat ever being bothered by Vogon poetry. You would also be popular among your friends, and have a decent chance of being stood a round or two of Pan Galactic Gargle Blasters to share and enjoy.

This will be available for sale in Maggie"s Etsy shop.
