About Us

About Us

Critical Sheep currently stocks two sizes of yarn – our “D4” Fingering weight and our “D10” Worsted weight.  Both yarns are colorfast and superwash, which means there should be little-to-no bleeding or running of colors in the wash.

D4 Fingering

75% Superwash Merino and 25% nylon, which is perfect for sock knitters and anyone that wants a superwash yarn!

  • 231 yards per 50g skein
  • Gauge: 26-32 sts = 4 inches on US 0-2.5

Machine wash cold, lay flat to dry. However, for best color safety, hand-wash your woolens!

 

D10 Worsted

100% Superwash Merino, which is excellent for warm mittens, cozy hats or sqishy sweaters!

  • 218 yards per 50g skein
  • Gauge: 18-20 sts = 4” on US 6-8

Machine wash cold, lay flat to dry. However, for best color safety, hand-wash your woolens!

Our Merino is ethically sourced, and as a responsible member of the fiber community, this is an extremely important aspect of our business, both from purchasing yarns and selling to you, our customers.

About Amanda

I’m a nerd, knitter and lover of everything that has to do with sheep. If I could live in the country with a big farmhouse with a herd of sheep and spend my days knitting, spinning, cooking and making a warm and loving home, I would be so happy with my life. I live in Waukesha and love filling my time with yarnie goodness. I am married to an equally nerdy man and we spend our Saturday nights playing all manner of games.
