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.

Love, Love this color! Your yarns are so soft and easy to work with. So far I have only made socks and hats. Have a few new cowl patterns I am going to try. Bad Sheep Yarn is fabulous, Marcie, the staff so great. Look forward to Thursday night Live at Five! Thank you so much.

yarn review
Written by Nancy Stanford on Aug 15th 2022

Combined this with Light Wash Jarn for a DK/worsted weight. Love the combo held together. Had an issue winding one of the skeins - yarn seemed to be twisted around itself and didn't want to unwind from the swift. I did get it sorted.

Great as Usual

Absolutely LOVE this yarn for so many reasons starting with the colors! Am planing to knit a cowl with it, and can’t wait to start. Marcie’s customer service is amazing! The yarn arrived a lot faster than I thought it would from Alaska. This is my first purchase from BSY, but definitely not my last

I just posted this review on FB, in case you already read it. Hi to all, if you had even the smallest idea of shopping at Bad Sheep, stop reading this and race to the website. Marcie has the most beautiful yarn colors. Each color comes in all weights and they are beautiful. Her customer service is Superior to any site I have looked at or purchased . I ordered a variegated yarn which came in a more pastel color than I thought it would, even thought it was terrific , I would have been totally happy using it. But she said she had a batch that was darker and would I like to trade. Not only did she send me a mailing label to send back the originally yarn but she mailed the new yarn before she got the first one. The new one is beautiful and not as pastel as the first. I am totally thrilled doing business with her and love her yarn. Hurry to her site, she’s waiting for your order.

Beautiful Yarn

A friend recommended Bad Sheep Yarn and once I checked out the website, I was hooked! Bought 2 hanks of the Rainbows and Airwaves in the worsted. I don’t know for sure what I’ll be making but it’ll be special. The yarn is so soft and the colors in person are stunning! I’m sure I’ll be buying more! The yarn arrived more quickly than I thought, too.
