When I started dyeing yarn, I knew I wanted a color that looked like the Gulf of Mexico. The stretch of beach in the panhandle of Florida (nicknamed "The Emerald Coast") has been my second home for my entire life, and it is one my favorite places in the whole world. I took the name of the beach road-- County Road 30-A-- that runs through South Walton County, FL as the name for this green-blue colorway.

Republica Unicornia's BFL Sock base is 100% Superwash British Bluefaced Leicester wool, 438 yards/100 grams, 4-ply.

Bluefaced Leicester (BFL) is a British sheep breed that produces the most glorious wool: it's soft but a little sheepier than merino, which means it is less prone to pilling. It has a beautiful luster, takes dye wonderfully, and has good stitch definition. (I love it so much.)

*********************************************************************

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. 

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.
