SpaceCadet

Sample -- Mini-Skein Gradient Mix Sweater Kits

from $125.00

Shop/Kits & KALs/Sweater Kits/Fingering

Our SpaceCadet® Mini-Skein colourways are now available in select colourways as full skeins! 

Offered for a limited time, these kits are available in either Fingering or Sport weight yarns to suit any project.  If you're in love with the latest Mini-Skeins and want to use the colourways in a larger project, now you can order them as full, 100g skeins!


The Colourway

As the days grow shorter and the air begins to cool, the brash shades of summer begin to mellow and blend, becoming subdued hues that make for the perfect Autumn Walk.

Watch as the colours change in your hands, flowing from deep pine greens through into soft browns, stunning golds, and then morphs into stunning faded blues.  And then -- because this is a SpaceCadet Start Anywhere Kit -- the colours of the last skein flow back again into the first!


Ordering details

  • Order as many kits as you like, and we will get them in the dyepots for you! Because this is a custom process, please allow up to 4-6 weeks for your order to be ready (though we aim for much faster than that)
  • These kits will be remain available to order for two weeks. The listing will be marked as sold out at 12.01am (EST) on Oct 23 2015.
  • 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/kits pictured, each is sold separately.

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!
