SpaceCadet® Sweater Sets are a fun way to grab just the right amount of yarn for your next sweater!  Each set 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 a Linking Kit?  Well, it's what we call a gradient that works its way from one of our standard colourways to another standard colourway.  Not only does that produce a really beautiful gradient, but it means that if you need to size up a kit (to adjust the fit or modify a pattern), it's really easy -- just get an extra skein in of the the colours at either end of the gradient and it will blend right in. (For an illustration of how that works, click on the last image on the left)

The Yarn:


Lyra is a beautifully spoingy yarn that's a joy to use, with a cabled 8-ply construction gives it strength and durability.

Fiber Content:100% Superwash Merino; 8-ply
Weight: Sport/DK. Each skein is approximately 3.5oz/100g, and the yarn contains approximately 270 yards per 100g


Oriana combines incredible drape for swingy shawls and cardigans, with a sock yarn work ethic that never gives in!  It hangs like cotton but has the hand-feel and memory of wool, and its 8-ply construction gives it surprising durability.

Fiber Content: 90% Superwash Merino, 10% Nylon; 8-ply
Weight: Fingering;  Each skein is approximately 3.5oz/100g, and the yarn contains approximately 420 yards per 100g


Vega is the worsted sister of Lyra, and is just as delightfully sproingy... and hardworking.
Fiber Content:100% Superwash merino wool; cabled 8-ply
Weight: Worsted; Each skein is approximately 3.5oz/100g, and the yarn contains approximately 215 yards per 100g


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.
