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 this yarn .

Love it!

I loved this the second I saw it and had to try it. The softness is great and the color blend looks like the picture. Once worked up the yarn is the same and not splitting etc. So I'm very happy with the quality. I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 because unfortunately my hank was horrible to spin, took me over a hour to roll it into a ball by hand from my swift because it was a tangled mess with strands weaving all over. I'm not sure what happened since I've never had problems like this before, I'm hoping it's a one-off situation. Extremely happy and will definitely buy again.

The color reminds me of a painter's studio on an overcast day; all shades of grey from cement to granite, with a wash of khaki to mossy browns, and some brighter blues and greens sprinkled throughout. I'm very pleased.

This yarn is amazing! So soft, beautifully colored, amazing stitch definition. An absolute treat to knit with!

Beautiful but not what I was going for
Written by Danielle Snyder on Jul 7th 2022

Let me say first that this yarn is still very pretty and I didn’t ask to return it because I want to use it for other projects. However, the hues weren’t quite what I was anticipating (less blue/grey and more grey) or going for. I had a large order placed with this yarn for my husband’s sweater that wasn’t yet shipped (the first skein came in another order), and they were fantastic about changing out the yarn for another colorway. Pictures are so hard to capture the color correctly, so I appreciate the work it takes.

This exceeded my expectations, it is beautiful. It arrived before I was ready to use it, so I haven't started working with it yet. I can tell though that it will be dreamy!

I love this yarn. The subtle shading of the grays and greens is beautiful. I’ve already wound it and it will be my next project. This is the third time I’ve ordered and will continue to support Bad Sheep Yarn in the future. Beautiful yarn
