How does this yarn take colour? Lyra is 100% Superwash Merino, so it takes colour beautifully, and the results will be very similar to the pictures on the left.
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!
Colourways marked Dyed to Order
Choose your colourway and place your order, and we'll get to work custom dyeing your yarn. As each yarn is created by hand, please allow 4-6 weeks for us to finish your order (but it may be much sooner, depending on current orders).
BONUS: When a colourway is in stock, you'll see the number of skeins available right there in the drop-down menu (also in the list below). Orders consisting of in-stock yarns will go out straight away! If your order contains a mix of in-stock and custom-order yarns, we'll send them all together when the custom yarns are finished.
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.
