*We have recently changed our bulky weight base. The photos are of our older base. The newer base has tighter plies and is not as lofty as pictured.*

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

Beautiful cranberry red for an old fashioned Christmas lap blanket. I am using this with evergreen, starlight, and eggnog. The color variation in the yarn is very slight, imperceptible really in the two skeins I have. Might be more variations in other weights, I don't know.

It is hard to put into words how beautiful this red is…such a deep, bold color that is more stunning in oerson, Totally saving for a special piece.

Oh, it is just so delicious! The colour is the rich red I was looking for. Can’t wait to cast on my next sweater.

Poinsettia was one of the first yarns I bought from Marcie, and it has always been a favorite. I just unwrapped my Kennicott worsted and I love it so much. The rich color is so elegant, especially for a larger project. I'll be making a Christmas gift for a sweet little one - a Red Riding Hood style sweater with a pointed hood. I can't wait!
