We endeavor to display color as accurately as possible but, due to monitor variations, your monitor may display the yarns differently than they appear in real life. We also attempt to display the yarns in the bases listed as often as possible. However, we source most of our photographs from our vendors, and since every color is not listed in every base the color may be represented on a base different from the one you are purchasing. Please email or call us if you have ANY questions about the yarn base and color prior to purchase! Your happiness is our every desire!
A favorite in our Blue-faced Leicester line of yarns. This is a light 2-ply fingering weight yarn with a silky halo and a soft hand. The tonal variations of this yarn are gorgeous due to the addition of both cashmere and silk. This is an excellent choice when you are looking for a yarn for textured stitch patterns, cables or lace work. Please note, this yarn is NOT superwash.

I was introduced to and fell in love with The Sated Sheep during the Best Little Yarn Crawl in Texas in October 2019. The folks who work there are wonderful, and the selection of yarn is spectacular. I don't live in Dripping Springs, so I can't visit the shop regularly. BUT, they have almost all of their merchandise for purchase on their website. The pictures and descriptions are clear enough that I feel very confident buying yarn unseen. The yarn is even more beautiful in person. Colors are even more saturated. My orders have arrived very quickly (yay!). This is my second online purchase of Butterfly BFL. This yarn is gorgeous and wonderful to knit with. The 4 colorways I have purchased are stunning. I am knitting a lace scarf that has required several lifelines and regular ripping out. Even though this yarn has a slight halo due to the cashmere, it has NOT torn up when I have to tink a few rows. I highly, HIGHLY recommend The Sated Sheep and working with Butterfly BFL. Both will put a smile on your face.
Oh YAY!! We were so excited when Nancy and Veronica introduced this new base! BFL is a little foreign to knitters in the U.S. and it's super exciting to us when customers discover just how wonderful it is!! Thank you so much for the review and your kind words!!
This yarn is scrumptious! It has such a soft, bouncy hand, and the color mix is drop-dead gorgeous! The colorway I bought has a subtle rainbow of colors. I am not sure what shawl pattern I will use for this yarn, but I know I will love the finished result.
Thank you so much for reviewing the yarn! We adore the Butterfly and really hope it catches on because we think it's dreamy too!
