Holiday Limited Edition Colourways

from $28.00

Shop/HolidayLimitedEditions

To celebrate the upcoming holidays, we did what we love best and created four new, stunning colourways to ring in the season. With every colour we layered on, the skeins seemed to get more and more breathtaking!  Dyed on four bases — Pyxis, Lucina, Lyra, and Astrid — in very limited quantities, they’re sure to go very quickly, so grab the colourways you love while you have the chance.

In the first photo, the bases for each colourway are clockwise from top left: Lucina, Pyxis, Lyra, and Astrid.

Yarn details

Lucina is a smooshy and soft fingering yarn, with nylon for strength and an eye-catching cascade of sparkes!

Weight: Fingering; Each skein is approximately 3.5oz/100g, and the yarn contains approximately 430 yards per 100g

Pyxis is a wonderful laceweight, delicate enough for the most intricate stitchwork, and yet solid enough for stockinette.

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. Where there are multiple skeins pictured, each is sold separately.
