Announcing... SpaceCadet Curls 2 Kits!

Hunter Hammersen's Curls are marvelously flexible, wearable wraps that work with any weight of yarn, can be knit at any gauge, and look beautiful at any size.  Knit them small and wear them as a cowl. Keep going to make a scarf. Do a bit more, and you’ve got a shawl. They form a wonderfully curved shape that drapes beautifully around your neck and shoulders and can be worn in lots of different ways.

The Artifice Curl (pictured left) is designed in SpaceCadet's Maia and so, to celebrate the book's release, we've put together some limited edition curls kits so you can cast on and make your own! Are you as excited as we are?!?

About the Kits

Available in five delicious colourways (Dark Skies, Feather, Oxblood, Plume, or Longing), each kit contains:

  • Hunter's sumptuous Curls 2 book, featuring 14 stunning designs with full instructions and beautiful photography
  • Plus a download code that gives you electronic copies of every pattern in the entire book!
  • Two skeins of SpaceCadet® Maia, our incredibly gorgeous 80% bamboo/20% merino fingering yarn with a glorious iced sheen and amazing drape
  • A cool SpaceCadet project bag, screenprinted exclusively for us by the fab folks at HipStrings, to carry all your goodies in!

But we have a limited number of copies of the book and so could make only a limited number of kits.  Be quick to grab your favourite colour!


Tell me about the yarn!

Maia (my-a) is simply a stunning yarn, named after the fourth brightest star in the Pleiades. Spun with bamboo for incredible sheen and beautiful drape, Maia's soft colours and "iced" appearance make it the perfect yarn for your most elegant and eye-catching.

Fiber Content: 80% Bamboo, 20% Superwash Merino; 4-ply
Weight: Fingering;  Each skein is approximately 3.5oz/100g, and the yarn contains approximately 400 yards per 100g

How does this yarn take colour? Because bamboo does not take on the colour from acid dyes, colourways in Maia are much, much softer than our other fingering yarns, and the sheen gives them a wonderful "iced" appearance that adds to its unique look. 


At SpaceCadet, we passionately believe that knitting and crocheting make people happier deep down inside and that nothing does that more than working with gorgeous, vibrant yarn. For us, dyeing is a cosmic adventure -- a wonderful process of mixing each shade by hand from primaries and seeing where the colour takes us. The result is yarn that is as exciting for you as it is for us. Come with us and explore the farthest reaches of SpaceCadet colour!


Very Important Stuff: All hand-dyed yarns can vary between and within dyelots and their true beauty is the individuality in every skein.  Please be sure to order enough yarn for your project, to reduce the chance of differences between your skeins.  If you'd prefer to reduce any variation in your project, we recommend alternating skeins every two rows in your project. Please remember that our photos are as accurate as possible, but the colours you see also depend on your computer monitor's settings.
