(Need more skeins than are in stock? Go ahead
and order and we'll dye them up fresh for you!)



Thebe (thee-bee) is named for the fourth moon of Jupiter.  Combining silk and linen into a heavy laceweight that gets softer and more lovely with age, Thebe has a swing and drape that is just wonderful.

Fiber Content: 65% Silk, 35% Linen; 2-ply
Weight: Heavy Lace; Each skein is approximately 3.5oz/100g, and the yarn contains approximately 665 yards per 100g

How does this yarn take colour? Because of its high linen content, Thebe takes on colour much, much more softly than a woolen yarn.  If you think of the colours at the left like a brand-spanking new pair of jeans, the same colourways in Thebe are much more like an faded pair of your most-loved jeans.

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.
