So gorgeous! The depth of color and nuance is just stunning. I can't wait to knit it up, but I almost don't want to lose the beauty of it skeined up by winding!

Folklore Worsted
Written by Yasmine on Sep 8th 2022

I love this yarn! I usually buy BSY fingering weight but for my new project I needed to use the worsted weight. It’s so soft, the colors are beautiful especially when you get pockets of pinks and greens. Will definitely use again for another project

I loved the picture on your website and am just as in love with the actual color. Don't have a plan for the yarn yet but toying with shawl patterns. Assigned pooling technique looks so interesting, so my try to use it for that pattern

Scrumptious doesn’t even begin to describe this yarn. The colors are vibrant and I can’t wait to find the perfect pattern to show them off.

Written by Donna S Ferguson on Jun 24th 2022

This is beautiful yarn but the variation in color is not what I expected. My package is more orange/blue than I was hoping for. I ordered this yarn because of the rainbow look of the colors.

Written by Justine Arrasate Lloyd on Jun 11th 2022

This yarn is even MORE scrumptious in person than it is in the picture of it! I am looking forward to casting on the perfect sweater for it. I wish I could purchase at least 5 of every single colorway!!! LOL

Written by Shelley scott Burroughs on Apr 10th 2022

Amazing blend of colors, even my husband was in love with them at first sight. Can't wait until I figure out what I am going to make with the yarn and see it knitted up.

This was part of my first purchase and I love it. I can't wait to see it worked up, probably into socks or a shawl. Thank you for your amazing product!

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

I love this yarn - it is so colorful! It is wonderfully soft and beautifully dyed. Get some! :) 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.

Such beautiful yarn!
Written by Donna Johnson on Dec 10th 2021

I just love the vibrant colors! I can't wait to use it in one of my projects!

Folklore sock weight
Written by Julie Johnson on Nov 11th 2021

The color is even more vibrant in person. Amazing representation online. This yarn is magnificent to work with. I will definitely be making additional purchases from Bad Sheep Yarn!

Written by Linda Gillespie on Oct 27th 2021

Yarn feels dreamy, haven't knitted with it yet but will say the colors are a bit more muted than in the photograph, not a lot, just a bit. I think they are just as lovely, but others might be disappointed. Four stars because of color difference.

Written by Linnea Nord on Oct 4th 2021

This yarn definitely lived up to its description. The colors are all very true to the picture and flow together perfectly.

Written by Susan Clark Joul on Aug 9th 2021

The colors in this yarn tell so many stories. The rich blue, the dark greens, pinks, golds, all so pretty! The quality of this yarn like all of them is exceptional.

Love this colorway
Written by Dino on Feb 11th 2021

The colors or so rich and earthy, there are so many but they blend so well together. The actual yarn color fits the name so well, and I don't think the picture does this colorway justice. If someone is looking for that richness that comes with age, this is the yarn.

Written by Kelli on Oct 29th 2020

I now have Folklore in two different weights: the colorway is so beautiful that once I had it in one weight, I had to order it in another! And both bases are divine.
