*We have recently changed our bulky weight base. The photos are of our older base. The newer base has tighter plies and is not as lofty as pictured.*

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

Not as bright as pictures. Disappointed in color.

I knew from BSY’s pictures, that I would love this yarn. And I do: It is easy and smooth to work with. In sport weight, it is producing fascinating diagonal striping while becoming a pair of socks for a dear friend. This wonderful soft and warm Merino Superwash yarn will keep her always cold feet warm and happy. And she’ll love the gorgeous colors reminding her of her beloved Monet’s water lilies.

Absolutely gorgeous, and even prettier in real life! The fiber content is also incredibly soft. I can’t wait to use it!

Water lily sock yarn review
Written by Carolyn Thacker on Feb 16th 2022

I received my package quickly. I wound the Hank into a ball yesterday. It appears to be quality yarn, no knots or other problems were found. The color was quite different from the pictures. I am aware that that is always a possibility with hand dyed fiber. Looking forward to working with it.
