Even though the holiday may feel a little schmaltzy, it's really important to recognise the relationships that bring so much meaning and richness to our lives.
So whether it's a romantic Valentine's Day gesture or a Galentine's Day gift for a dear friend (or yourself!), we're celebrating those important relationships with some special one-of-a-kind Small Batches dyed in deep, rich colourways. Some are available as individual skeins and some as specially coordinated sets, so look through them and find the one that feels most special to you, and let it give some stunning colour to your Valentine's or Galentine's Day!Important notes:
Oriana is a deceptive yarn! Its eight plies give like wool while you work your stitches (because it's 90% wool!), wear like iron (perfect for socks), but drapes just like cotton (for amazing shawls and swingy sweaters)
Lyra (leer-a or lie-ra) is beautifully spoingy yarn that's a joy to use. Named for a small constellation, Lyra's cabled 8-ply construction gives it a loftiness that feels fantastic, and the strength to used for anything from socks to sweaters.
Vega is a worsted version of our incredibly popular cabled 8-ply Lyra. The result of this special plying technique is a yarn that is plump and round, with great stitch definition, extra durability and — best of all — super sproingy!is beautifully spoingy yarn that's a joy to use.
Capella is a yarn you just keep reaching for... to squish... and squish... and squish. Its single-ply construction and soft-as-clouds merino create a poofiness that's just so touchable.
Astrid is a lofty and light yarn that feels wonderful against your skin.
Elara is bulky yarn with an intriguing and distinctive texture, perfect for quick knits on big needles.
Cressida has a slightly rustic texture that's perfect for larger gauge projects.
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.
