Gift Subscription to the SpaceCadet's Gradient Explorers

Sold out.

Give the gift of gorgeous yarn delivered straight to the doorstep every month!

We usually keep our Gradient Explorers club small and intimate  ...and now you have the chance to give a one-time gift subscription to your favourite knitter or crocheter -- or try it yourself! 

We've taken the same idea of our super-popular Mini-Skein Club applied it to full  skeins for sweater-sized fun!  Each month we dye a stunning colourway that flows into the next month’s colour… and into the next month’s colour …and into the next. 

Plus our Gradient Explorers colourways work with our standard colourways, so you can use the Never Ending Gradient on its own or mix in yarns from your SpaceCadet stash to build up your sweater set even faster!  Each month, we tell you which colourways your new skein coordinates with best, so it’s all awesome surprise and no guesswork.

Our Gift Subscription allows you or your gift recipient to join in with our regular club members from June 2020 onwards.  You pay only once, and we send out parcels of gorgeous yarny goodness every month!

First, you choose your subscription level:

  • Single: one skein of your chosen yarn
  • Double: two skeins of your chosen yarn (both dyed in the same colourway)
    Then, choose your yarn.
    We’ll dye your Never Ending Gradient onto that same yarn each month, so your skeins will always work together.   You can choose from:
    •  Celeste (fingering):  With a generous 490yds/100g, our super light fingering in 100% superwash merino works up on larger needles to create a light and airy fabric that’s perfect for warmer weather sweaters and cardigans
    • Aurora (fingering): our super-soft cashmere-blend that’s just dreamy to work with.  Constructed of 70% superwash merino, 20% cashmere, and 10% nylon, and with 350yds/100g, it has double the cashmere softness of most MCNs and that makes allll the difference!
    • Lyra (sport): spun into a wonderful cabled 8-ply that gives incredible stitch definition, this 100% superwash merino yarn has 270yds/100g and is a beautifully sproingy yarn that is a joy to work with.
    • Vega (worsted): this is the sister yarn to Lyra (above), in the same 100% superwash merino cabled 8-ply construction that gives such beautiful stitch definition, but in a quick knitting worsted with 210yds/100g.
    At the end of your subscription, you'll have the option to join the regular Mini-Skein Club and continue your subscription

      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!
