"There are two kinds of beach people: party beach people and zen beach people."

That was from my sister, a few years ago on a week's stay the beach.  We were at a party beach... and it turns out I'm very much a zen beach person, so the whole week felt a little off.  I did all the things that everyone else was doing, because there's real value in the camaraderie of a week spent with people you love.  

But in the off hours, when no one was about, I'd find myself sneaking off to be alone with the beach.  Sitting high in the dunes, amongst the tall beach grasses, and digging my toes into the sand.  Watching the sun set the sky ablaze as the beach faded into shades of blush.  The pink streaks across the last of the blue sky.  The soft grey shadows in the dunes.  And the silence broken only by the meditative sound of the waves breaking down on the shoreline below.

The colours of those zen moments are etched into my memory.  

And now, those same colours have come to life for you in our Summer Limited Edition Collection.  Six colourways created to reflect the quietest beach moments -- when the whole world turns to stunning shades of blush -- and dyed onto gorgeous yarns for the most delightful of summer 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.
