Shop/Yarns/Sport & DK/Lyra

I love that moment when a customer falls in love with a yarn for the very same reasons I love it.  It means we share something, we both get it.  That happened recently with Lyra.  A customer received her order and immediately wrote back, “I love Lyra!  It’s so bouncy!

And she’s right – that’s exactly what it is.  Lyra’s cabled construction mean its eight plies are always pushing against one another, making it incredibly plump, round, and…  well, bouncy.  It gives it fabulous stitch definition – just watch those cables pop! – and incredible smooshiness.

Smooshy, bouncy, gorgeous Lyra.  I love it.  And I think you will too.

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.
