Brooklyn Tweed

Brooklyn Tweed are passionate about wool, knitting and design. They develop and manufacture breed-specific yarns that support domestic textile production—designing, sourcing, dyeing and spinning their yarns within the USA. The design team is committed to producing high-quality, sophisticated knitwear patterns for the modern handknitter, especially tailored for the wool yarns they create.

A DK-weight wool yarn spun from American Targhee sheep. Arbor's 3 ply construction and elastic hand make it particularly suited for textured stitches and cables. Each skein has been sourced, scoured, spun and dyed in the US.

Unlike Shelter and Loft which are woollen-spun, Arbor is worsted-spun giving handknit fabrics a balance between drape and loft and making it the perfect yarn for sweater and accessory knitting. Arbor's gauge range is 5.25 - 6 sts per inch. Arbor’s fabrics are light enough to wear from Spring to Fall, and the yarn’s weight will be accessible to most knitters.

Quarry is a chunky brother to Shelter and Loft inspired by roving-style “unspun” yarns, offered in pillowy 100-gram skeins. It begins with three strands of the same lofty, woolen-spun Targhee-Columbia fleece, but rather than twisting the individual plies they are nestled together and gently spun. The result is a plump yarn that looks like a single ply and has greater tensile strength and stitch definition than a true unspun yarn.

The distinctive character of Targhee-Columbia wool shines in Shelter, a very versatile medium-weight yarn. Shelter is woolen spun, meaning the fibers remain in a lofty jumble that traps air and offers remarkable warmth and lightness. Its two plies are gently twisted to preserve that buoyant quality, so Shelter is a little more delicate than most commercial yarns. Woolen-spun yarns are also more adaptable in gauge, as they can compress to a dense sport weight or bloom to cohere as a gauzy fabric when worked on large needles.

Fingering-weight Loft channels Targhee-Columbia wool’s airy bounce into feather-light lace, accessories, and garments. Like Shelter, Loft is a woolen-spun 2-ply yarn with delicate twist, specially designed for unique lightness of hand. It’s not a sock yarn, so treat it a little more gently when it’s on the winder and the needles. Once your garment is blocked, the stitches will cohere in a beautifully even and sturdy fabric. Lace garments should open up to reveal stitch motifs with relatively mild blocking.
