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.

Dark Woods yarn
Written by Annie on Mar 24th 2023

Beautiful! I love it ???

Beautiful wool - great customer service!
Written by Peggy on Dec 24th 2022

The colors of the Dark Woods yarn are so rich and deep, the texture so soft - it is wonderful to work with. There was a bit of a misadventure on my order (not their fault), and they were quick to respond to my enquiry and keep me posted when it all got sorted out and my yarn was once more on my way. They were also quick to respond when I emailed a follow-up question. Great, all the way around - would highly recommend them!

Beautiful colors and lovely hand. I intend to use it as the contrast for the "Alaska hat." Fitting, don't you think!

This yarn is gorgeous. I saw it on Instagram, went to their website , ordered it and it was in my mailbox three days later! Fast service, fabulous colors and great website!

The yarn I received was not at all as shown in your photo. I am very disappointed to say the least. I realize that colors may vary somewhat however not to this extent. I received two skeins that I will NEVER use. I was quite happy with my previous purchase but this yarn is dark and dingy and just terrible. Dark Woods indeed!!!

Gorgeous yarn—DARK WOODS
Written by Maria Wells on Mar 11th 2022

I love ALL of the yarns I’ve bought from Bad Sheep Yarn. I first found these yarns at a trunk show in a MA yarn shop—then had to visit the web site to see more. I’m knitting fingerless gloves, supporting a Ukrainian maker (Granat (cabled mitts) by Irina Dmitrieva on Ravelry). The worsted weight yarn is beautifully soft and shows off the cabled pattern marvelously. I am biased since I have been knitting with Bad Sheep Yarns (fingering & DK weights)—they are dreamy! ❤️

First time buyer. Loved the colors on the website so ordered 4 different in fingering and sock. Just got them. Still love colors but have not started to knit them yet. Will keep you posted.

Lovely Colors and Squishiness off the charts
Written by Bevy on Jan 11th 2022

This Dark Woods is AWESOME - I'm currently crocheting with it in a Mistletoe shawl that's turning into a X-mas themed with the colors I'm using. Love the colors and the texture is awesome and the yarn smells wonderful as the dyer washes them with soap as a last step. This is a dyer that is meticulous in her attention to detail.

Written by Tiffany on Oct 23rd 2021

Amazing yarn! Colors are absolutely perfect and I love how soft and squishy the yarn is!

Dark Woods Yarn
Written by Susan Clark Joul on Aug 9th 2021

This colorway takes me back into the woods where the sunlight barely peeks through the treetops, the place where the forest floor is undisturbed, the place where deer sleep and owls call from the trees. It's beautiful!!!

Gorgeous Colorway
Written by Stevie on Feb 25th 2021

This is an overall dark colorway (hence the title) with exciting pops of color - reminds me of looking through the trees as the sun sets on the App trial. The yarn quality is also fantastic.

I got this yarn in fingering weight to make a scarf for my husband. I thought it would be pretty from the pictures, but it is so much better in person. I love the pops of blues and oranges in this yarn. My husband can’t wait to see what I make with this. I’ve made a couple of shawls with other colors from Bad Sheep and have love the results so i expect this will turn out beautifully as well.
