      on New England farms. I wash, card and blend fleece and dyed wool roving, or alpaca with soy silk, bamboo, silk and other natural plant fibers.
      I dye the fleece I process with non - toxic dyes. Then I spin, ply, and skein yarn from fine to heavy weights. In addition to beautiful dyed yarns,
      I offer natural color, undyed yarns as Sheepish Naturals.

Space Cadet Yarns



SpaceCadet Inc: Hand-dyed Yarns for Knitters and Crocheters
             
   

Why SpaceCadet? When I was a kid and I’d do something dumb (the way kids do), my dad used to call me “space cadet”. It was always said with love, tinged with exasperation.  There was a lot of love in the house while I was growing up, but I also did a lot of dumb things.  Eventually the nickname started to stick, and I began to feel like I really was a space cadet. Sometimes I still do.So I decided a long time ago that when I finally broke out of the mould of ordinary work to do something creative — something I wanted to be proud of — I was going to name my project “SpaceCadet”. I would baptise that nickname with a whole new meaning. I love what I do. I love creating colours, creating yarns, and giving my customers something beautiful to feed their creative juices.  And so I can say, at last, that I am truly proud to be the SpaceCadet.

The Yarns of Richard Devrieze                                             
    With fiber dyeing in his genes, Rhichard's journey to master dyer and beyond has incorporated involvement in hand-spinning, hand- 
    weaving a line of one-of-a-kind clothing and accessories, shepherding a flock of merinos, and dancing in the creation of colourways        inspired by experience and imagination. Let your imagination soar incorporating his yarns in your project.            
Claudia Hand Paint Yarns  



     Peace, Love, Comfort & Joy are the words that run through my mind as I knit a scarf for my stepdaughter. Saying the words over and over again,
     they became a prayer. I wanted to impart these qualities into the garment itself and through the garment to the wearer. 

    This is why I knit and dye yarns. It is an almost compulsive need to make physical my feelings so that I may share them.
    While I had begun dyeing yarn a couple of years earlier, the company was incorporated and formally set up in 2005, running out of the basement of my home.
     By 2007, we had acquired a small commercial space — and we are still there today.
We dye by hand all of the yarns we sell.
     Be warned, they are dyed with Peace, 
     Love, Comfort & Joy; may they be yours as well.
