SpaceCadet® Sweater Kits are a fun way to grab just the right amount of yarn for your next sweater! Available in Fingering or Sport weight, our semi-solid kits contain 4 or 5 full size skeins of SpaceCadet® yarn in our wonderfully rich colourways.
Ombré and Gradient Kits add excitement to your project as the colour morphs gently from the dark into light or from hue to hue. Each kit contains either 4 or 5 full size skeins of SpaceCadet® yarn, in colours that gently change along a spectrum from skein to skein.
What's the difference between an Ombré vs a Gradient Kit? For us, Ombré means the same colourway gradually fades from skein to skein. And Gradient means the skeins gently transition from colour to colour across the kit. Ombré and Gradient colourways may not be available individually
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!
Colourways marked Dyed to Order
Choose your colourway and place your order, and we'll get to work custom dyeing your yarn. As each yarn is created by hand, please allow 4-6 weeks for us to finish your order (but it may be much sooner, depending on current orders).
BONUS: When a colourway is in stock, you'll see the number of skeins available right there in the drop-down menu (also in the list below). Orders consisting of in-stock yarns will go out straight away! If your order contains a mix of in-stock and custom-order yarns, we'll send them all together when the custom yarns are finished.

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.
