I was debating about this colorway, until you opened up a hank on Live @ 5 a few weeks ago. Seeing it live, not just in a still pic, wow, it came alive! I ordered it and I am working on a shawl with it paired with Kennicott!!! The still photos just don’t do justice to Sockeye! It is so vibrant. But then , I am finding that all your colorways are so much more, in person.
Sockeye Salmon is part of the 2019 Alaska Collection. Inspired from the beautiful and amazing Alaskan Salmon, this colorway is coppery red, teal blue, silvery grey, and green speckled.

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.
I can’t wait to knit with this yarn. The colors are absolutely gorgeous. I’m making socks for my daughter’s birthday. She works for the forest service, lives in Salmon ID, and loves fly fishing. Hoping she loves these socks.
I used this in a pooled knitting project and it looked amazing, even better than I had envisioned it would!
Easy knitting, pleasant texture, easy tensioning, knits up nice and even. I'm using seed stitch so it looks a bit different but I love the make seed stitch scarves. The worsted Sockeye Salmon colorway is soflty banding in seed stitch, which I like. I will have e leftovers from my two hanks, so I will also knit a pair of mitts.
Love this yarn! Color is fabulous!
The colors are beautiful and I am currently admiring it vs. Knitting with it. Too pretty not to knit up something special. Very fast delivery after order was placed.
Looks beautiful and is soft as it can be! There will be a hat made for sure.
Cannot wait to knit this up. Absolutely gorgeous yarn!
My skein is a little darker than I expected but I actually think that it looks more like salmon which I think will look great for the planned pooling project I'm wanting to use.
Love my yarn order. Wound into cakes & love the feel & colors . Will shop again.
Spectacular!! It just arrived and I note shipping was prompt. I can’t wait to knit this. Love, love~ so beautiful.
