One of the best things about dyeing from primaries is letting our imaginations run wild with colour!  And when that creates wonderful one-of-a-kind colourways like these, we often find ourselves putting them together into absolutely gorgeous sets and fades like these. 

There aren't as many of them, because they take extra effort to put together, and it's a rare treat to see these in the shop.  Each one is completely one of a kind and will never be repeated.  They are first come, first serve, and once they're gone, they are gone.

Important notes:

  • yarns are priced per set, not per skein
  • yarn in your cart is actually yours only once you've completed check out, so you'll need to be fast. Scroll to the bottom for 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.
