Black Sheep medium sized character jug produced by Quail Ceramics of the Midlands, England, circa 2020. Black sheep is an idiom that describes a member of a group who is different from the rest, especially a family member who does not fit in. The term stems from sheep whose fleece is colored black rather than the more common white; these sheep stand out in the flock and their wool is worth less as it will not dye.
