Although most of our bases are superwash wool, I recomend that all finished projects are hand washed and layed flat to dry.

We do not offer skein winding services. 

Bad Sheep Yarn strives to represent the true colors of our yarn in the photos we post. We also work hard to make sure that larger orders are in the same color batch. In spite of all this, please keep in mind when ordering that each batch is done by human hands; and that some computer monitors have different light settings. Our ultimate goal is to create something beautiful, as close to the photo as we can, just for you.

Christmas Carol

I am always knitting socks for Christmas and when Black Sheep came up with this yarn, I grabbed it. The colors are so rich and you could mix and match this yarn with many other colors of yarns to make socks, scarves, etc. It's beautiful.

I bought this to make a hat for my sister but didn't really like the colors. To bright colors for me. It's still great to knit with so making knitted ornaments.

I love the yarn. Beautiful and great quality. Howdy, I didn’t mean to buy fingering yarn so now I will search for a pattern. I will be purchasing a different size in the future.

This was my second BSY purchase. I really love the colors and the hand of the yarn. I have not started with this yarn yet but if it goes as my last purchase I will be more than happy.

Gorgeous colorway

Stunning. Love this colorway so much. Bought sport weight to being with and went back and purchased worsted weight to make a blanket. Would love to see a complimentary semi solid cardinal red to go with the reds in this colorway. Well done. This is not only a holiday colorway but could be used all year.
