I couldn't resist naming this yarn after that amazing legendary creature that has inhabited our imaginations since ancient times. In the Medieval era, unicorns were symbols of purity and grace in art and literature.
I started with a light shade of lilac and added Burgundy Rose, Contentment, and a fantastic neutral shade to give it some complexity. I added purple speckles to finish it off.
I dyed this yarn on my Sparkly Merino Sock base, which is made of 92% superwash merino and 8% sparkly lurex. It's a lovely base for shawls and cowls and hats.

Unicorn would go beautifully with Lilac, Burgundy Rose, and Eggplant to name a few.
