Seriously, this yarn is so incredibly luxurious, it's impossible to describe!
Just like Callisto, its sister fingering yarn, it has Alpaca for warmth, softness, and a delightfully subtle halo. Silk for incredible sheen. And linen for absolutely stunning drape.
And when we accidentally ordered this combination spun as DK instead of fingering, we decided to go ahead and dye it in these nine stunning semi-solid colourways.
Now, we're not planning on making Calypso a permanent SpaceCadet yarn. This is all there is.* But if you're the sort of person who sees silver linings in silly mistakes like this, then these skeins are for you!
Becauase there are just no words to describe what these three fibers become when you combine them. There's just the way it feels against your skin, the way you fall in love with it... over and over and over again.
*Probably. Most likely. Unless you write in after knitting or crocheting with it and tell us we're absolutely and completely wrong not to make Calypso permanent (which, I think you might...) and then maybe we'll have to rethink that. Honestly, it's down to you.

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.
