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.

Part of my first order from Bad Sheep and it won't be my last! Fell in love with this colorway as soon as I saw it. Got Sweet Cider to coordinate with it and they match beautifully. I ordered the DK and plan to make a shawl with them.

I love this colorway!! The colors are true to Alaskas Sockeye Salmon, and I am excited to use it with Glacier, which Marcie showed together on one of the live editions!! I think I need a shawl with both. Love it!!

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.

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.

Fabulously fishy!

I used this in a pooled knitting project and it looked amazing, even better than I had envisioned it would!

Written by Linda Demaray on Jun 13th 2022

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.

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.

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.
