The Colourway:

Two beautiful options

  • Safe (the colourway in your parcel)
  • Sound (a coordinating colourway)

These are the sorts of days to hold onto what makes you feel calm, relaxed, and safe.  And in so many ways, a gentle blue is all those things.  It’s your most comfortable pair of soft, faded denim jeans.  It’s a cloudless sky on a bright and sunny spring day.  It’s ripples rolling across crystal clear waters and gently lapping against the shore.

And these are also the sorts of days to grab onto what makes you feel light-hearted, joyful, and rejuvenated.  And that is everything about the sweet tanginess of soft sherbet orange.  It’s the bright glow of a bold sunrise, and it’s little pieces of coral gathered on a beach walk, or a juicy bowl of ripe melon.

For this lovely colourway, Safe, we wanted to dye colours that gave us comfort and joy.  So we started with that bright, carefree coral.  We’d been playing with it in the studio a few months ago and it just made us all feel so happy that it seemed the perfect colour to return to now.  And once it was dyed and set, we poured over the softest of blues, letting the colour flow through the dyewater and gently soak into the yarn.  And where it blended with the edges of the coral, it created a beautifully muted mauve-pink shade that creates a sophisticated contrast with the clearer tones of the rest of the skein.

Bonus Colourway! Sound

For the coordinating colourway, Sound (see what we did there?), we looked to those same relaxing and rejuvenating colours and, this time, intensified the blue to a deep and compellingly fresh hue.  It speaks of nautical adventures on warm seas, of pools of cool shade under a leafy tree, and of crisply pressed linen.  And we’ve added a little pop of clean white along with the bright coral, to create a few stitches of heathered colour as you work the yarn..

  • 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 colourway as  variegated as 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!
