$10 from each BAFU Gradient Set sold will be donated to the AIDS Network
Be a Freaking Unicorn Gradients Sets are bright and fluorescent, while being tempered by a black and royal purple for contrast. 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.
DYE to ORDER: Please note that if you order a “Dye to Order” gradient…it will look similar to these photos but 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!

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, a minimum of $5 CAD per skein sold (or 20% of other products) from my Be a Freaking Unicorn shop section will be donated to The AIDS Network in Hamilton ON.
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!)
On May 1st, a gallery will be launched on this site to showcase the yarn, fibre, and projects bags with links to each participating maker’s website. From May 1st-24th 2021, we invite you to shop directly from participating makers!
During the month of June, we encourage you to make something with your new stash, and use the hashtags #BAFU, #ifytbaubafu and #beafreakingunicorn to share it.
NOTES RE HAND-DYED YARNS:
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.
If you live within the Hamilton (GTA) or you will be passing through and want to arrange a pickup, choose the “local pickup” option and message me to arrange a time and place.
