this may be a dumb question. i was just looking at that yarn, and it's 12 ply. since the brown sheep is 24 ply, are you adjusting your gauge or is it still a worsted weight yarn?

That's an interesting point. I hadn't noticed that. I did get gauge using size 6 needles. I wonder if that's why the yarn seems so splitty?  It seems to knit up fine though

But isn't what you bought Brown Sheep, just a discontinued color?  Maybe it is mislabeled on the website?  Do you have the label on the yarn?

Yes. The label says Brown Sheep but the website says 12 ply.  I tried to split the yarn and I do only see 12 plies. Is that how ply works? The label doesn't mention ply on it but it is 100g/215yd. I wonder if it is a factory second or something?

I don't think the number of plies (can you say plies?) is relevant to the gauge.  Ply just means how many threads are twisted together, not how thick it is all together.  You could even have a single ply yarn that's bulky weight.  If it knits up to gauge, then it'll work!  (I've never used Brown Sheep, so I can't speak to that.)

in Australia, 12 ply is equal to worsted - 12ply is a size of yarn.... However, according to yarndex.com, Brown Sheep is a DK - double knit or '8ply' as we know it here in OZ...

Hope that helps...

Thanks to those who gave the heads up to the Sheep Shed Studio yarn...I just ordered the yarn for Rusted Root in Tangerine (and of course had to throw in some sock yarn as well). My entire order, for 3 skeins Cotton Fleece & 2 skeins "luxury sock yarn" PLUS shipping was only $25!

I freaking love Craftster. Helping me every day with my addiction...

I ordered a few skeins of cotton fleece in the pine green from Sheep Shed Studio for dirt cheap.  I got an email saying my order would be delayed because of the snow storms out there, and I thought it was really nice of them to email me and let me know rather than have me wonder. 

I was thinking of making this in a forest green color anyway, so a BIG THANK YOU to whoever posted this.

Sheep Shed was so cheap, that I was able to order enough Cotton Fleece to make myself and my Sister a Rusted Root in Candy Apple! (We live 3,000 miles away, so I'm cool with matching Rusted Roots).  My order came the same week, so I'll be casting on this weekend for sure.

wow beautiful sweaters!! since you are all experts now working with the cotton fleece yarn, would you suggest it for a lightweight warm weather blanket?  I am trying to find a good yarn that's breathable and lightweight for hot summer nights. :-)  everything has acrylic in it that seems to be a decent color, and acrylic is so suffucating and sticky.  the colors available in the cotton fleece are amazing, so i was thinking of giving it a go.  any opinions or advice? 

thanks  Grin

So I ordered the cotton fleece from Sheep Shed Studio on Friday, and I came home from work today (Monday) to find it sitting on my doorstep! I could not be more pleased with this place!

The yarn is freaking perfect, too- I was worried because the pictures on the website were not great and I wasn't sure of what I was going to get, but I am really happy with the Tangerine color.

Knottydottie- I haven't knit anything with the Cotton Fleece yet, so I'm probably not the best judge, but just feeling the yarn I feel like it would make an excellent warm weather blanket.

Rusted Root, you will be mine...
