Yarn Crayons Mini-Skein Collection

from $74.00

We always say that we think of our Mini-Skeins as "Yarn Crayons" and that gave us a great idea...  What if we put together a special Limited Edition of our Mini-Skeins in a rainbow of crayon colours?!?

Perfect for holiday gift giving, these sweet tubs of "Yarn Crayons" contain ten 20g (approx) Mini-Skeins of assorted SpaceCadet® fingering yarns, in a variety of one-of-a-kind gently variegated colourways in the full RoyGBiv spectrum (that's red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet), plus brown and black/charcoal.  So you'll have the whole rainbow at your fingertips!

Available in limited quantities and only until Dec 24th, but our last ordering day to ship for domestic holiday delivery is Mon Dec 19 (before 5pm est), so don't delay!

Each Yarn Crayon Mini-Skein Collection is comprised of ten 20g (approx) mini-skeins in an assortment of SpaceCadet® fingering yarns in gently variegated colourways.  Each skein's yardage depends on the type of yarn -- see below for yarn and yardage details.  Each set's colourways are one-of-a-kind and will differ slightly from those pictured here.

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!
