It's unlikely you'll buy this yarn, I know that.

In all honesty, Aurora just doesn't sell that well online -- because the thing that makes Aurora irresistible is impossible to show a computer screen.  I mean, I know you know that cashmere is luxuriously soft, but you're probably used to standard MCNs, the ones with only 10% cashmere.  Aurora has twice the cashmere.  At 20%, it's downright decadent.  It makes you swoon as soon as you touch it, and it sells like crazy at our yarn shows.

Because, well, swoon.

But online? Not so much.  There's just no way for me to be able to show you on a computer screen what makes Aurora so incredibly delicious.  Which is a real shame because... ohhhhhh, because this is such a luxurious yarn!

Yarn Info

A slightly plumper fingering, Aurora is rich and luxurous, warm and cosy, with a slight halo and a naturally muted approach to colour that's perfect for colder weather projects you'll snuggle into all season long.

Fiber Content: 70% Superwash Merino, 20% Cashmere, 10% Nylon; 4-ply
Weight: Fingering; Each skein is approximately 3.5oz/100g, and the yarn contains approximately 350 yards per 100g

How does this yarn take colour? Aurora contains 10% nylon which can sometimes mean it takes colour just slightly softer than the pictures on the left

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!

Colour note for Zoot: Zoot is an electric turquoise so incredibly intense that it is literally off the scale of what a camera can capture so, while the image you see here is not true to the colour at all, it's not one to be missed!

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.
