For someone who claims to hate pink, there is an AWFUL lot of pink in the Republica Unicornia dye catalog. 


Life in Plastic is bubblegum pop in yarn form, just like the iconic (!??!) song Barbie Girl by Aqua that inspired it. It's somewhere between a hot pink and a hot orchid tonal, and it is, in fact, ridiculous. (And fantastic).

Republica Unicornia's Rambouillet Worsted base is 100% U.S. Grown and Processed Superwash Rambouillet Wool, 196 yards/115 grams/5-Ply. It's springy and has a lovely round hand (and some kickass stitch definition). We are in love. Also, bonus points for singing "Rambouillet" to the tune of Led Zeppelin's "Ramble On." 


Everything you see here is made with love and some swearing in fabulous Atlanta, Georgia. Yarn is ethically-sourced (museling-free) and dyed with professional, colorfast, lightfast acid dyes. 

Due to the nature of hand-dyed yarn, I recommend that you alternate skeins in larger projects. There are often variations even within the same dyelot, so if you need a larger quantity than is available here (say, for a sweater), we've got the solution for that! 

Some color bleeding is normal during the first couple of washes. I wash the bejebus out of my skeins, but some colors are just bleeders. 

Your handmade items are magical delicate flowers and should be treated as such. Handwash in cool water with a delicate detergent (I recommend Sock Soap from Tuft Woolens) and lay flat to dry. Machine wash at your own risk (I'm not responsible for anything that happens to your project during machine washing. Those things are violent.) 

Yarn is dyed in a pet-free studio but stored in a pet-friendly one. 

I do my best to make sure items are true to color in the photos, but monitors/eyeballs/etc. differ. Blues and greens are especially hard to capture (I'M LOOKING AT YOU, ELECTRIC MRS. PEACOCK.) 

If you have a problem with or a question about your purchase, please contact me directly. I'm a reasonable human being. 

Thank you for supporting Republica Unicornia!
