Shag Carpet sits right on the line between green and yellow and is the color of formica counters, Pyrex mixing bowls, and the carpet in my childhood bedroom.

Republica Unicornia's Merino Worsted base is 100% superwash merino wool, 218 yards/100 g, 4-ply.


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. This is a retired colorway! 

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!
