So soft and silky bulky weight, this 2 ply bulky yarn is made of dreams and great for beginners. 

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

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.

worsted yarn
Written by cheryl curb on Feb 2nd 2023

I knit a hat out of the worsted weight of the Olive Tapenade and it is lovely to work with. Haven't used the fingering yet but have to get it wound first and I'll do that soon.

This yarn is pretty enough to eat! It's gorgeous and I will be making socks with it soon. I love pairing different colors of yarns to make my socks and I have a few Black Sheep yarns left that I can make my patchwork socks with it.

I LOVE this yarn. The bulky is soft and has the colors are a rich Autumn tone that is fully saturated. Shipping is quick and I feel it's extra special coming from Alaska!

I have not used the yarn yet, but I am very pleased with its texture, color and value. Will certainly recommend and would love to see Black Mountain Yarn, my local shop, stock it. Thank you, Marlene

I just recently started buying hand dyed yarn and I found Bad Sheep Yarn. This yarn is high quality, so soft and the colors are beautiful. I will definitely purchase more.

As usual, an unbelievable combination of colors that are going to knit up beautifully for a sweater I have in mind!
