Sheepy Time Yarns

Hand-dyed Sheepy Time Yarns available now. Check out our Yarns In Stock here.

Sheepy Time Yarns are each hand dyed with professional quality, low impact dyes for colorfastness and clear colors.

Colorways are achieved through a number of methods. Right now I'm really enjoying playing around with a multi-step technique of creating deep, rich, tone on tone colors. This technique produces non-repeating color variations, which means you get the same effect in the knit that you get in the ball, even, rich, color variations, without color pooling.

We have several base yarns that we use regularly (and will also occasionally produce special runs as we find new base yarns at good prices for you.) We love to do custom orders, and offer discounts for larger quantities, and free shipping for orders over $50.
