At SpaceCadet, we start with luxury fibers — merino wool, silk, linen, and bamboo — and then take the time to mix every dyebath by hand from primary colours, meaning every colourway is created using only five basic shades of dye, resulting in hand-dyed yarns and fiber that are a truly unique connection between the dyer and knitter or crocheter. It takes longer to dye this way, to be sure, but it is worth the extra effort!
Our colourways are all designed to work together, creating collections of semi-solids and variegateds that we mix and match with our customers right in our booth. We collaborate with awesome designers to create fun kits with patterns designed especially for our yarn. And our constant experimentation with colour leads to lots of amazing one-of-a-kind yarns and mini-skeins that are so fun to pore through at shows!
Started as a one-woman operation in 2010, we have grown to a small team with a passionate, driving belief is 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, one that allows us to follow our passion, share it with customers who feel the same, and to get to know them (and their beautiful FOs!) personally.
