COPYRIGHT & Terms of Use

Black Sheep Designs Website Copyright and Terms of Use

1. Introduction
Black Sheep Designs is a very small family business focused on feltmaking. We make and market hand-felted creations, feltmaking workshops and instruction, and felting supplies and hope to make a little money doing it. We like helping to spread the joys of quality crafts widely. While this statement of terms and conditions may sound a bit legalistic, its intent is simple: to enable individuals to pursue the personal pleasures of feltmaking while offering us a modicum of protection for the work we have put into our business.

A well-known problem area on web sites concerns the accurate reproduction of color.

Where color is critical in the purchase of any fiber, please request a sample prior to ordering.
