Two beautiful options
As soon as the weather turns -- and the warm breezes start blowing, and flowers begin to bloom, and all the birds seem to appear again out of nowhere -- I find myself instinctively turning to colours that feel crisp and clean. It’s almost like a spring cleaning of my creativity. Suddenly, I don’t want to dye the moody and muted colours that felt so intuitive all winter. I want everything fresh and bright and happy.
And that’s exactly where we started with this colourway. We decided to focus on two of our favourite hues: a cool blue and a deep purple. They just felt right in the coolness of these early Spring days. Now in truth, both of these colours have a moodiness to them but instead of letting the dye completely saturate the whole length of the yarn, we purposely layered it on in a way that allowed the colour to soak up along the skein. And doing that meant that the intensity of the dye changs across the yarn – and so does the colour, becoming lighter and somehow fresher where it blends with the natural white of the skein. It creates beautiful depth of shade and little pops of darker and lighter colours, all set against that crisp white background.
The result is a colourway that looks almost nautical to me. Once it’s caked, the colours will blend more and will knit or crochet up into a beautifully haphazard mix of shades. But through it all is that clean white, lifting everything and adding a crisp cleanness that just feels so good right now!
And for the coordinating colour, we took the same colours and gave them a beautiful sun-bleached look that works incredibly well with the original skeins, adding yet more depth to the colour while making the darker shades really pop. Use it to create stripes, as an accent, or for a project on its own.

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!
