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 with lovely lights of color, just like the northern skies. If I can't see them where I live, it's nice to have this beautiful yarn. Soft and comfortable against my face.

While I haven't knit with this yet, the colors are exactly what I expected from the photos. I got the wool very soon after placing the order. I don't need more yarn, but I know I'll be ordering more from Bad Sheep; the colors and quality are too good to resist!
