Small Batch Sunday 2018 Colourways

from $26.00

Shop/Misc

Opening Sunday Nov 25 at 2pm (est)

Inspired by the start of the holiday season, we did what we love best and headed into the studio to play with yarn and colour, and the results are these absolutely gorgeous small batches! 

Black Friday already has a theme, and so does Cyber Monday and Small Business Saturday, so I thought maybe we could release these on Sunday -- and rename it Small Batch Sunday.  If you've got someone on your holiday list who loves truly unique yarn, then these small batches are a perfect fit!

Each of these batches contains (at least) enough yarn for a sweater quantity, and each one is completely unique and will never be repeated.  They are first come, first serve, and once they're gone, they are gone.

Yarn Guide

Here's a really an important note: yarn in your cart is actually yours only once you've completed check out, so you'll need to be fast. Here's an easy guide to yarn and yardage so you can make decisions quickly:

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.
