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 you will be able to order 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. 

The January Yarnicorn is "Out of This World". It's something extremely enjoyable or impressible, something too good for this world! 

Out of This World is dyed by Over the Moon Yarn on their Electron Sock base, a fingering weight yarn that is soft and sleek. Inspired by the Universe and all the expanding, changing life forms within its reach, Sarina and Caitlin hand dye yarn in their Alberta dye studio in small batches. Each skein is inspired by their imaginations of deep space, using bold speckles and vibrant colours.  

Electron Sock is a versatile Merino blend that can be used for any next to skin project like shawls as well as items where a little more durability is required such as socks and gloves.

Pattern Suggestion: 

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 

Charitable Donations: 

$2 from the sale of every skein of Yarnicorn will go to the Edmonton Mustard Seed to help others who are in need.

A message from the dyer about this yarn: 

"We are so honored to be apart of this collaboration with River City Yarns.
Out of This World is a magical explosion inspired by nebulas in space. They are among the most beautiful objects in the universe. Glowing with rich colours and swirls of light, speckled among them are bursts of colours across the whole spectrum. We hope you enjoy this interstellar creation we have brought to life for you." - Caitlin and Sarina
