    Yarn Question - Brown Sheep Yarn Co.

    I have a BUNCH of a yarn that I purchased from DBNY before they went out of business (sad face...small sobs).
    It is a Brown Sheep Yarn Co. yarn and it is a bit "ropey", almost as if it is a homespun that was slightly over-spun. I am making a sample square to see how it washes up and _hopefully_ blooms wonderfully.
    Question: Has anyone here used this ? I would love to see a project made with this after it has been washed. My daughter started using some of this (because ... y'all... I bought 7 colors of 5 skeins each and that is some YARN) on a piece she was crocheting, but is concerned about how it is coming out.
    It is a worsted weight, has no name (boooo) .


    Pics to follow of a skein and the label, as well as my partially completed test. Thanks for any input you may have!

    You are right - it does look tightly spun. I’ll be curious to see what input others have to offer and how it washes up. I don’t have experience with this type of yarn, though.
    Knitting is happening here! ❤️

      Somehow I cannot see any photo. Char, how did you manage to see it?

        I am adding this to my question, in case you answer and I don't notice for a while (you may have solved this problem long ago by now). I knit this hat out of Lamb's Pride bulky (not worsted, and it is 85/15 wool and mohair). Don't judge by the hat, because I am trying out various patterns to make a brim. I know this isn't the yarn you're asking about, but I loved this yarn (my first time w/ Lamb's Pride/Brown Sheep). Wonderful springiness and body to it. I definitely will make something again--aiming at a sweater as soon as I can justify adding some more to my stash. However, this yarn isn't for baby blankets or anything like that for sure.
