Hobbii Unicorn is a lovely wool yarn in gorgeous shades. We found it at an extremely talented yarn dyer in Istanbul. After almost 3 decades of experience in the yarn industry, she has chosen to set out on her own with hand-dyed yarns. We were blown away by the beautiful colors, which is why she now manufactures Unicorn exclusively for us.
Each hank of Hobbii Unicorn is unique because the yarn is hand-dyed. It enables the most beautiful interplay of colors in the yarn, which consists of a mixture of exquisite merino wool and polyamide. This means Unicorn is durable enough for socks, but the wonderful shades make it an obvious choice for unique shawls, sweaters, or a funky vest. You can try pairing Unicorn with a thin strand of silk mohair and create a fluffy dream in the loveliest hues.
When yarn is hand-dyed in small batches it means that two skeins will never be the same and the colors vary more than usual from lot to lot. It's a good idea to calculate exactly how much you will need for your project before you start, so you are sure to have enough.
For larger projects, we recommend making a gradual color change before your skein runs out and you start on a new one. Specifically, this means that you should alternate between knitting/crocheting a row with the old skein and then a row with the new one. Repeat a few times until the old skein is used up. That way you avoid an overly obvious color shift in the transition between the two skeins of hand-dyed yarn.
NB! 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.

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:

OH MY Goodness, this yarn is AMAZING. I am beyond excited and happy to get this yarn today. The colorways is more beautiful in person than on the screen. I bought Graceful, the grey is like a stormy sky grey and then there is this deep dark blue like a dangerous sea and a gorgeous magenta color that can be deep purple or bright almost neon pink.And it’s so soft it feels like a baby’s skin . This yarn is so worth the price. I can’t wait till it gets restocked because I NEED more , I can’t wait to find a pattern worthy of this yarn!!!
I've been eyeing this yarn ever since I saw the Hazy Unicorn shawl TWO YEARS AGO! While I liked the color used in the original pattern, I absolutely love color 2 - Giving. It was finally in stock and on super sale during live shopping last month so I bought a bunch. The hand-dyeing is so beautiful! I love that Hobbii also lists the coordinating Unicorn Solid colors so I bought those as well! Can't wait to make my Hazy Unicorn...and lots of other things with this yarn!
Where have you been before? I am absolutely in love with this yarn, colors and texture are amazing, so soft. I purchased color 07(amazed) on super deal, working on a top-down sweater. It has beautiful vibrant colors and very deep blue, it will be a perfect casual sweater with jeans. In hobbii patterns, I see it was mixed with mohair, but I am using it as is, to me nothing additional is needed.
I bought the color 02 because it was on sale. It is definitely better in person than on the screen. I knitted a pair of socks. This yarn is as soft as unicorn solid, which I'm totally in love with! I'm amazed with its quality. I'd highly recommend this yarn to anyone who is interested and I'm planning on buying more sometime soon!
I purchased the color 06, and the colors are so vibrant and lovely. Can't wait for this yarn to restock so I can buy some in every color. With my Clover crochet hooks, the stitches worked up smoothly and quickly, with very minimal splitting. I made my first pair of socks and I'm in love with them!
