$45.00$60.00 (CAD)

I created this Be a Freaking Unicorn gradient set during the kick off of the Be a Freaking Unicorn project in May 2021 and it was so popular that I had to bring it back!

It is available as a gradient set, 7x30g (750 yds) or 7x20g (500 yds), as well as a kit for the Unicorn Stripes Cowl by Mary Martin.

$10 from each BAFU 7x 30g Gradient Set  or $5 from each BAFU 7x20g sold will be donated to the AIDS Network

DYE to ORDER: Please note that although a “Dye to Order” gradient will look similar to these photos, it will not be the exact same.
Each gradient set is unique.  Even when I try, all my gradients take on a life of their own at the end and these Unicorn sets are a perfect example of that!
Allow 1-2 weeks for creation and shipping.

Be a Freaking Unicorn Gradients Sets are bright and fluorescent!  While the initial batch has black as a contrast, this one sticks with all the bright colors….fluorescent yellow, orange, pink, purple and blue.  A great set to make an eye-popping item and show off your inner unicorn!  This gradient set contains seven squishy mini skeins handdyed and speckled by me in my lab in Hamilton Ontario.

Be a Freaking Unicorn is a project started by a group of Ontario-based independent dyers, centred around the concept that everyone has a unique creative perspective to bring to the table.

Designed to support our local LGBTQ+ communities, $10 from each BAFU 7x 30g Gradient Set  or $5 from each BAFU 7x20g sold will be donated to the AIDS Network

We believe: That artists should be paid for their work, in spreading joy one colourful skein at a time, and in the importance of supporting our local LGBTQ+ organizations (especially a year into the COVID-19 pandemic!)

Be aware that colors may appear differently on different computer monitors, but every effort has been made to portray them as accurately as possible.
All of my yarns are hand dyed and, as much as I attempt to match, every batch is one-of-a-kind.  Be sure to order what you need as matching future batches are not guaranteed.
When using hand-dyed yarns in a project that requires more than one skein, it is strongly recommended to alternate skeins every other row of knitting to even out any differences.
Lastly, as with any hand dyed yarn, please expect minor imperfections and some variation from skein to skein (even within the same batch), as each skein is individually hand painted.
