It??s hard to walk into the doors of The Black Sheep and not be immediately mesmerized by the abounding colors and textures all around you. You feel the need to rush and touch everything, because it truly is that beautiful. But then you quickly realize that this is the kind of store people spend hours in, because it is that kind of special place, and that nothing here is rushed. From the exquisite hand-dyed, one-of-a-kind yarns, to the rich and aromatic natural fibers, down to the uber eco-friendly modern materials like soy, bamboo, linen, and flax, The Black Sheep is home to one of the most pristine inventories of crafting materials in all of California, if not the country. With suppliers coming in from all around the world, vying for a spot on The Black Sheep??s store shelves, it??s easy to understand why this store has become such an integral piece of Encinitas?? thriving economy. As owner Karen Henderson enthusiastically explained, ??We have been even more lucky than most, because handmade and homemade is what so many people are doing these days, in order to save money. People are going out less and learning how to make things on their own. We are very grateful that we are able to offer our clients materials, even classes, as well as our knowledge of the industry, to help them in a fun, economical, and very creative environment. Whether it be yarn or wool, or beads, buttons or burlwood shawl pins, we have it all.?

As promised, The Black Sheep offers weekly classes for adults, in all areas of fibers, including knitting and crocheting, silk painting, fiber collage, free form crochet, doll making, fiber jewelry, and garment making. Classes are typically 3 to 5 hours in duration, and all information can be found on the store??s web site www.theblacksheep.biz.

The Black Sheep is open daily 10 to 6, and closed on Sundays.

Knitting can be very daunting to me but not when I walk into this shop. The staff have a wealth of knowledge that they love to share - in a very easy to follow manner. GREAT hard to find products.

The Black Sheep is my most favorite yarn shop. I no longer live in San Diego County, but when I did, I absolutely haunted this shop. I never miss an opportunity to stop in whenever I am visiting San Diego. Karen does a fabulous job of stocking the very best yarns. And if you're looking for ethnic beads, this is the place to go. I took many classes at the Black Sheep, every one well worth my investment of time and money

This is the largest yarn store that I have ever been in. They have every type and color of yarn. They have spinning supplies also. The sales ladies are super helpful and they have tons of patterns. I love looking at all of the demonstration pieces. They offer classes for everyone.

This store has a great selection of yarns, beautiful wooden and metal knitting needles, books, etc. I'm a beginner, but have found lots of great yarns and friendly help at this shop. They also offer classes.
