The Periwinkle Sheep merino chunky - you are my sunshine


This yarn is 100% superwash merino yarn, made from American wool at a domestic fiber mill, and hand dyed in small batches in my studio in Albany, NY. An entirely American made yarn!

It loves to soak up dye, is springy and wonderful to knit with.
With this particular dye process, no two skeins are exactly alike. If you are making a larger project with several skeins, you may want to alternate skeins throughout.

PLEASE NOTE If you need larger /sweater quantities, just let me know by custom order! I'll dye within a week of your order.

Gauge: 2.5-3.5 sts / in.
Suggested needle size: 10.5 - 13
Please always make a swatch to ensure proper fit.

Shipping from United States

Periwinkle Sheep yarn is usually shipped via First Class Mail within 3-5 business days of receiving payment. I will contact you if there are any delays beyond this timeframe.


I check each skein for any kind of flaw in the spinning or dyeing. While the occasional single knot MAY occur, and is considered normal, please do not hesitate to convo me if a skein has a noticeable uneven spot, or a streak I may have missed. I will issue you a refund for the cost of the yarn.


Please do not hesitate to convo me if you ever need more than one skein for a project. I'll be happy to dye up a fresh batch for you!
