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 brownish green 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.

409 yards / 4 oz / 4 plies

Unicorn would go beautifully with Lilac, Burgundy Rose, and Eggplant to name a few.
MY GIFT TO YOU
As a token of my appreciation, I would be happy to include your choice of either a sprig of fresh rosemary from my organic garden or a handmade felt ball infused with essential lavender oil with your order. Both of these smell wonderful and are natural moth deterrents. Just let me know if you would like one and which one you would prefer in the note to seller when you check out.
