Finally opening for the season! 

     Well it looks like things are improving in Nova Scotia so retail will be allowed to open on June 2nd. I will be opening the shop!  Right now we are only allowed to have 25% capacity in retail shops, so only two people or one "bubbled" group are allowed in the shop at one time. I ask that everybody uses the hand sanitizer on the way in and masks must be properly worn at all times. I want everybody to feel secure and have a safe shopping experience here!

     You can still order online and do curbside pickup if you wish. After you place your order on the website, I will let you know when it's ready. When you arrive at the shop just call me and I will bring out your order and put it on the unicorn out front for you to pick up! 

     Let's have a fun and safe summer! 

The shop has a wide range of hand-dyed yarns from across Canada as well as a nice selection of sock yarns and fun yarns from elsewhere! From handspun baby bison to the yarns of Master Dyer, Rhichard Devrieze, you will find something interesting for your next project. 

There is also a wide range of accessories for knitting, crocheting and weaving. Need some inspiration? Buy a kit and have everything you need to start the project right in front of you. Project bags to keep everything in are also available in fun fabrics too!


If you are looking for something for the person who has everything, look no further. From soap dentures to mermaid fabric sculptures, you will find intriguing items from wall to w​all. Yarn from all over Canada is now a large portion of the shop!

The Violet Unicorn is also host to many different arts and crafts classes when there isn't a pandemic.

Online Ordering

The shop now open, but you can still order online. The masks now all online too! Over 130 fabrics to choose from! You MUST  check out all the new yarns which have been added to the shop!

Non-medical masks now available at the shop!

I have been hoarding crazy fabric for years and I'm finally vindicated! I have a wide range of awesome masks - Dr. Who, Star Wars, Walking Dead and lots more while supplies last. I also, of course, have LOTS of unicorn masks. If you are having trouble getting your kids to wear a mask, try an awesome pattern and they may want to wear it to show it off! I have adult size and child size available. I can make them two layers or three layers with an inner layer of polypropylene. Nose wire, adjustable ear loops - lots of options!

The masks are all available for purchase online-just click the link below to see what I currently have for designs.
