You may already know Hobbii Unicorn, our extremely popular, hand dyed merino?
The quality was created when we found an extremely talented person in Istanbul who dyes yarn by hand. We were mesmerized by the beautiful colors the first time we saw her work, and since then she’s produced the multi colored Hobbii Unicorn especially for us.
And the possibilities grow exponentially with this solid color verson: Unicorn Solid. It’s made from the exact same base of soft, extra fine merino. The solid version is not dyed by hand, and that means that the color is completely uniform. The colors for Unicorn Solid were developed in close cooperation with our color expert who hand dyes Unicorn, and she’s matched the shades with colors that are used in Unicorn. You don’t need to worry about combining the two versions because the colors will match beautifully - and the yarn is of the same great quality.
If you want to experiment with dying yarn by hand with a luxurious, quality yarn, then we recommend that you use Unicorn Solid color no. 1. It’s the exact same yarn that Unicorn is made with.
Unicorn Solid is remarkable because of the high quality. It’s a carefully balanced mix between the exquisite, fine merino wool, and the strengthening polyamide that it’s spun with. It makes Unicorn Solid durable enough that you can even use it for socks, but the comfort is still high enough that you can use it to knit the most exquisite clothes - with extra durability.
We have a little tip for you: You can get the most luxurious results if you combine Unicorn Solid with a thin strand of mohair like our Kid Silk. The fluffy silk mohair will give you knit or crocheted project extra volume and add a beautiful shine.
Unicorn Solid has received a superwash treatment and can therefore be washed in the washing machine (please note the other washing instructions).
The yarn is OEKO-TEX® certified (no. 1976-294). Find more information about the certification on the https://www.oeko-tex.com/en/
The darker colors might bleed a bit. If that occurs we recommend rinsing the yarn.
If you use the Solid version with Unicorn, it’s of the utmost importance that you follow the washing instructions for the hand dyed version: Hand wash at max. 68℉ (20℃) and no soaking.The Unicorn Solid colors are found in the following Unicorn versions:
18 is found in Unicorn 1, 7
Please note that the colors in Unicorn may vary from Unicorn Solid, since Unicorn is hand dyed, which can result in color variations, even though the exact same color has been used in the coloring process.

I bought this yarn to make a shawl and it turned out in the exact way I wished - beautiful and soft! I don't feel any itchiness on my direct skin and I totally love it! I followed the instruction and already washed my shawl a few times. It seems like a good quality that lasts for a long time! I'd definitely buy more yarns when they're on sale in the future.
I had high expectations and I am very happy with the yarn. Surprisingly soft and easy to work with and knits up beautifully. I purchased 5 different colors and there were no surprises. I found that the photos captures the color of the yarn very precise. I chose the yarn for easy care sweaters for everyday use and it has worked very well for that purpose.
I have just finished a pair of cable socks with Unicorn Solid and it was a pleasure to work with. The socks are gloriously squishy and so warm on my feet. Down here in Australia we are just getting into the cooler weather - and I am so glad I have just got a package of more Unicorn Solid and will soon have more warm socks.
So lovely and the quality is excellent. At this price point, it is far better than I expected. The colour is rich and beautiful and my daughter could pick her favourite colour. I am working on a wrap for her and she keeps coming by just to admire the colour. I am already planning future projects with this yarn.
Fantastic yarn, very soft, easy to work with. Using this for a butterfly shell, this yarn is easy to change from one color to the next it is very sturdy and does not fray when knitting. I often worry about soft yarns splitting and making it difficult to knit. I've never had that problem with this yarn.
