Tiny Moons Mini-Mini-Skein Sets

from $4.00

There is a kind of magic in tiny things..

The sound of a single acorn that falls from the tree and lands with a little thump on dried leaves. The sensation of a crisp breeze that signals the seasons’ change. The tiniest pinprick stars twinkling constellations against the cold night sky.

And SpaceCadet’s Tiny Moons hold that same kind of magic. Our smallest Mini-Skeins, itty-bitty at only 8-10g each, are saturated with layers of rich colour that belie their delicate size.

And inspired by the endless possibilities for their complex and deeply intriguing hues, we’ve curated these three special collections of Tiny Moons in colours inspired by the natural palette of the season. The gloriously warm hues of bright autumn splendour. The soft neutral hues in the subtle play of bare branches and shadows. And the cool crystalline hues of starry winter skies.  The colourways in each set are one-of-a-kind, allowing you to determine the colour order to create your own truly unique project. 

And from that inspiration comes the Tiny Moon Trio, a set of quick and engaging little knits.  With simple shaping and a hint of texture, this lovely hat, cowl, and mitts are designed to highlight the beauty in the colour changes of the Tiny Moons.

Our gift to you...

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!
