The unicorn is the national animal for Scotland.
Alba is Scottish Gaelic for Scotland and also means ‘white’ in latin.
The sparkling rainbow mane represents diversity and inclusion, but it can be done in any colour/colours you like. An ideal way to use up the odds and ends in your wool stash.
The pattern would also work well for a horse, just change the colours
