Medusa is a saturated pink/orange/deep coral tonal, named for the myth of Perseus and Medusa (in ancient Greek mythology, the origin of red coral is blood from the head of the slain Medusa falling onto seaweed.)  It's marine biology, culture, and gore all in one skein! What more could you ask for?

Republica Unicornia's Domestic 3-Ply Merino is 100g/450 yards of fluffy, soft, nonsuperwash goodness.

The wool is entirely grown, processed, and spun in the United States and Responsible Wool Standard Certified, and while we can't be ENTIRELY sure, we think the sheep's name is probably Colin. (PSST! Sheep have to be sheared and it isn't harmful to them!) 


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. 

Thank you for supporting Republica Unicornia!
