Forty Below is a more pleasant interpretation of our winter temperatures.
Temps like forty below are so cold that it takes your breath away. But it isn't a normal Winter in Alaska without weather that chills you to your bones. Forty Below is a pale grey colorway with darker gray patches and blue speckles.

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.

I bought a sweater quantity of this yarn. I am so in love with the softness, I just want to sit and pet it. I can't wait to get it on my needles. I have purchased four other colors recently and each one is better than the last. I can't knit as fast as these wonderful colors show up in my mailbox!
