What is a Yarnicorn? Well, it’s a mystical and wonderfully unique yarn that you simply can’t find anywhere else. It’s crafted by one-of-a-kind dye artists, often local. And once it’s gone, it’s gone. 2022 will be the last year of the Flash Mob series and every month during 2022, on the 20th day at 6:00 PM Mountain Time, you will be able to order on our website, a one of a kind, unique and special Yarnicorn colourway to cherish.

Unicorns are said to have healing powers. Well, the Yarnicorn will contribute to the aid of local citizens. Each month, a portion of sales will go towards a different charity or organization. And in each month of 2022, Barb and Cynthia will use one skein of Yarnicorn to make a square for a "Memories" blanket that they will auction off for charity at the end of 2022.

Purchase a skein (or more) of Yarnicorn each month and use it to create whatever your heart desires and/or join Barb and Cynthia in making The Yarnicorn Memories Blanket, a "modular" (join as you go) blanket inspired by our Gramma Tutton, who made lap blankets for all of her grandchildren, in this very way. As you cuddle under your blanket, you can remember all the projects you made! Download the free pattern

 

A message from Jana at Hand Maiden about this yarn:

"Let’s set the scene – imagine a crisp night sky with a full moon lighting the landscape. It’s so bright there are moonshadows. Our daytime environment of greens and golds have given way to deep blues, purples, frosty pinks and the light of the moon. A wolf howls and there is a silent peace. This colourway celebrates the beauty of the nighttime world."


Charitable Donations:

$2 from the sale of every skein of Yarnicorn this month will go to https://www.yamnuskawolfdogsanctuary.com - a Wolf Dog rescue sanctuary in Cochrane Alberta.


Note about hand painted yarns: These skeins are dyed by hand and may vary in colour and/or intensity from skein to skein, even within the same dye lot. Colours viewed on different monitors may have shade and tone differences from the actual product.
