Prism Break Sets

Sold out.


Every time we go to a yarn show, we notice the same odd phenomenon happen again and again: customers are drawn to our rainbow of colours, they pick up a bright skein and fall in love with it, and then talk themselves out of it and buy grey instead.  Over and over and over. 

Now, I get it: grey is lovely.  And it's safe.  But if it's rainbows that are calling out to you and yet you're not quite ready to go full-on rainbow bright...  well, we decided to do a little something to help you out there!

So we blended those bold hues with subdued greys to create our Prism Break Collection: twelve amazing colourways that let you embrace the rainbow in a more subtle way.  Choose the bright Radiant spectrum or the more muted Deep spectrum and just cast on -- the grey background allows each colourway to flow seamlessly into the next.

Each set contains:

  • six 100g (approx) skeins of yarn (yardage depends on the base you choose, see details below)
  • in a full rainbow spectrum (Radiant or Deep)

(Each of these colourways is available as individual skeinsClick here to order them on Astrid, Celeste, Elara, Ester, Lyra, Oriana, or Vega)

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 items pictured, each is sold separately.
