With our unrivaled color palettes and multitude of weights and fiber blends, find the perfect yarn for your knitting, crochet, weaving or felting project. Why choose wool? Among its many natural properties, wool is absorbent, breathable, warm, and pliable. Our wool yarns are spun to be smooth enough to wear and are vibrantly colorful

“I love Brown Sheep Yarns because they are so reliable. I trust completely that I’ll be able to afford the yarn, that it will be nice to work with, and most importantly that my project will look nice for years to come. For these reasons I particularly love using Brown Sheep Yarns for large projects like sweaters. I’ve been using Brown Sheep Yarns for a decade now and have never been disappointed.”

“Brown Sheep Yarn is my trusted friend when I want to knit. The range of weight, color palette, quality and availability is unmatched. I have made sweaters, socks, hats, mittens and blankets with every available option, and it always works out. People I’ve taught all love it too. I can’t wait to see what they will come up with next.”
