The Colourway:

Three beautiful options

  • Bonfire (the colourway in your parcel)
  • Embers (a coordinating colourway)
  • Sparks (a coordinating colourway)

As the days grow chilly and the nights get cold, it is the perfect time of year to for a big, beautiful bonfire.  Nothing feels more autumnal to me than standing near the blaze, holding a cup of something warm, and watching the glow of orange and gold leap up into the sky, dancing and swirling and breaking into a million little sparks of light caught up by the cold night wind.  Listening to the pop and hiss, breathing in the unmistakable smell, feeling the cold on my back and heat on my face…  To me, this is everything I love most about autumn!

So of course I wanted to take that whole experience and recreate it in dye and warm, smooshy yarn!   We started with those lovely glowing autumnal reds and russets that you find right at the base of the bonfire, layering them on one at a time and letting the colours swirl and blend into one another.  Then we gave it a pop of that wonderful gold that shoots up in the flames and escapes into the night air.  And around it all, we created a base of beautiful charcoal grey, almost black but not quite.  I love the way the deep tones set off the brightness of the gold and rusts – they pop almost as loudly as the fire itself!

Two Bonus Colourway! Embers & Sparks

There’s two of them this month, just because we couldn’t help ourselves!  One is called Embers, capturing all those deep glowing reds at the base of the fire.  And the other is called Sparks, and it’s based on the warm glow of the fabulous gold tips of the flames, where they burst into the night sky.  Used them individually to create a collection of autumnal accessories, or combine them in a single project for a eye-popping effect.  Or, they’ll combine them in an amazing fade with SpaceCadet’s colourways Dark Skies, Honey, Oxblood, and Troublemaker.

  • An important note about skein matchingAs you all know, different dyelots rarely match perfectly, especially in hand-dyed yarns, and even more especially in a variegated colourway like this one. Although we will do everything in our power to replicate the yarns from first dyelot, the yarn you receive may not match perfectly. Do bear this in mind if an exact match is important to you. To minimise any visible impact when using hand-dyed yarns, we always recommend alternating skeins every couple of rows in your project.

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!
