Summer 2022 Thebe OOAKs Collection

Sold out.


I know that the "right" way to run an indie dye company like SpaceCadet is to create repeatable colourways and dye them over an over.  And we have a lot of really beautiful repeatable colourways.

But if I'm honest, the thing that gets us really excited is a lot more playful than that! What we love most is layering colour on colour to create wonderfully complex One-of-a-Kind skeins.

And when the heat and humidity are hitting their highs, all we want is deep, rich, saturated colour on cool, cool linen and silk.  So that's what we've dyed, in our Summer 2022 Thebe One-of-a-Kinds, a collection of yarns that are utterly breathtaking.

Each skein is completely one of a kind and cannot be repeated, and it's a rare treat to see these in the shop.  They are first come, first serve, and once they're gone, they are gone.  An important note: the yarn in your cart is actually yours only once you've completed check out, so you'll need to be fast.

    Weight: Heavy Lace; Each skein is approximately 3.5oz/100g, and the yarn contains approximately 665 yards per 100g

    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.
