The Colourways:

Two beautiful options

  • Cold Sky (the colourway in your parcel)
  • Fresh Light (a coordinating colourway)
As the cold weather sets in, the early mornings seem to take on the change most dramatically.  Daylight – suddenly so much rarer and more precious – take on hues of chilliness as the atmosphere grows clearer with the cold.  The rising sun adds little warm – just a touch of blush along the horizon – as clouds streak in icy fingers across the sky, fracturing the firmament into a glorious prism of blues.
To create this colourway, we started with a pale, icy blue and layered the skeins into it in way that allowed the colour to soak into them unevenly.  Then we mixed a much deeper, inkier shade – like the last remnants of night – and carefully applied it in streaks across part of the skeins.  And finally, we created a soft blush and gently washed that across the yarn, knowing that it would show its true colour where the yarn was palest and blend into intriguing shades of purple and even soft khakis where it mixed with the blues.
And for the coordinating colourway, we imaged a winter morning just after the sun breaks the horizon, mixing up those same blushes and blues but changing their proportions and allowing the warmer hues to really shine. Use it for its own project or combined with the original colourway. See the enclosed card to check it out!

  • A very important note: As you all know, different dyelots rarely match perfectly, especially in hand-dyed yarns. Although we will do everything in our power to replicate the yarns from first dyelot, the yarn you receive may not match perfectly. Do bear this in mind if an exact match is important to you. To minimise any visible impact when using hand-dyed yarns, we always recommend alternating skeins every couple of rows in your project.

Bonus! Grab an extra copy of the SpaceCadet's LogBook too!

The gift for this parcel is something I am incredibly excited to share with you!  Because although a lot of our crafting lives have moved to digital tools, there’s still nothing that gives the same tactile satisfaction as putting pen to paper.  And for a long time, I’ve wanted an analogue place to record notes on my projects but never found anything that was quite what I was looking for…  so I created it myself!

With spaces for all your pattern and yarn info, a place to record your gauge and needles, and lots of room for notes, this knitting notebook will be released to the public in time for the holidays… but you can get extra copies for over 30% off! 
(And crocheting friends, don’t worry – a crochet notebook is in the works!  As soon as it’s available, we’ll make sure you can get a copy with a very generous discount.)

Normally priced at $12.90, they're available to club members for only $8.75!


 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!
