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.

The yarn is beautiful, soft and very warm! I made a hat for myself and I love it.

Love my Kennicott!

This yarn is so soft and squishy with a brilliant and saturated rust red color. I’m knitting a Papillon shawl with Muse yarn also from Bad Sheep (also brilliant colors) alternating these colors as the main and contrast colors. Can’t wait to see what other colors and combinations Bad Sheep comes up with!

A classic Christmas red with flecks of black throughout. Striking alone. Emboldened when paired with Chinook and cozy against Marshmallow.

Color Rich! Oh, my this yarn is so pretty. I’ve got it on my needles now and love picking it up. I’m really going to enjoy wearing the scarf I’m making. Beautiful Kennicott!

Worsted Kennicott

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.

I ordered both worsted and bulky and it's simply gorgeous! It arrived the day after I ordered it and I can hardly wait to get started.

Kennicot yarn

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!
