Black sheep aren't really black - more like sooty brownish-grey colour. This fabric is reminiscent of the sooty look of black-faced sheep that are so prized for their uniquely coloured wool.
Similar to DMC 3799 with a brownish tinge on line, and significantly darker than 451 with a definite pinkness on evenweaves. Because of the intensity of this colour, it may bleed - if in doubt, pre-wash your fabric before using, and try to avoid washing it after it has been stitched.
This colour works well on all available fabrics, with linen giving the brightest results. Lugana, other evenweaves and Aida give paler (more muted) results.
