This yarn color was named in honor of Star Gazer, a barred owl. She was born mostly blind due to a genetic cataract. Shortly after fledging from her nest, she was rescued as she hopped in circles in someone's lawn, unable to see where to go. She has lived her life as an AWARE ambassador, visiting schools to educate about peaceful coexistence, and spending time with her partner barred owl, Tappy.
10% of the sales of this yarn go directly to AWARE to support their efforts.
