The Illumintated Collection - Autumn 2021 Limited Editions

Inspired by the deep jeweltones and fantastical creatures that illustrate ancient illuminated manuscripts, our Illuminated Collection of three Limited Edition colourways are the perfect inspiration for your autumn knitting and crocheting.  In soft rose gilded with golds, deep amethyst tinged by oxblood, and gentle sage awash with emerald, these are glorious colours to delight you stitch by stitch.  Available in October exclusively to ticket holders at the Indie Untangled Rhinebeck Trunk Show, and dyed on SpaceCadet Callisto (alpaca/silk/linen fingering), Celeste (merino fingering), Lyra (merino sport/dk), and Capella (single-ply worsted).

First your colourway, then your yarn

There are three gorgeous colourways to choose from, so start there first.  Then pick your yarn from the options below: there are two awesome fingerings and a fabulous sport/dk.  Select your combos from the dropdown menu and you're all set!

(We may be able to dye these colourways on some of our other yarns too -- if there's one you really want, email us and we'll see what we can do)

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.
