I know that the “right” way to run an indie dye company like SpaceCadet is to create repeatable colourways and dye them over an over. And we have a lot of really beautiful repeatable colourways.

But if I’m honest, the thing that gets us really excited is a lot more playful than that! What we love most is layering colour on colour to create wonderfully complex one-of-a-kind skeins.

And when the heat and humidity are hitting their highs, all we want is deep, rich, saturated colour on cool, cool linen and silk. So that’s what we’ve dyed, in our Summer 2022 Thebe One-of-a-Kinds, a collection of yarns that are utterly breathtaking.

Each skein is completely one of a kind and cannot be repeated, and it’s a rare treat to see these in the shop. They are first come, first serve, and once they’re gone, they are gone. An important note: the yarn in your cart is actually yours only once you’ve completed check out, so you’ll need to be fast.
