 Imbue’s 5-ply construction creates a marvelously round and springy yarn with stunning definition in cables and textured stitch patterns. Worsted-spun from next-to-skin soft American Merino wool, Imbue knits up into a luxurious fabric with heirloom durability.

Rare in a worsted spun yarn, Imbue’s heathered colorways are blended from an assortment of fleece-dyed solid colors, creating richly complex shades that harmonize beautifully in colorwork and stripes.

In a versatile worsted weight, Imbue is an ideal choice for soft and cozy sweaters, accessories, and blankets.

FIBER CHARACTERISTICS
The wool for Imbue comes from Merino sheep raised in Utah and Nevada. An ancient breed hailing back to 12th century Spain, the “King of Sheep" is renowned for supremely soft and dense finewool fleeces with lively spring, velvety luster, and superb vibrance of color when dyed. Ideal for cozy sweaters, accessories, and blankets, Imbue’s worsted-spun 5-ply construction brings smoothness and durability to this wonderfully wearable wool.

DYE PROCESS
Like an artist mixing their paints, Brooklyn Tweed blends brilliantly dyed hues of unspun wool in precise proportions to create each colorway of Imbue. When spun, these bright solid colors mingle into richly heathered shades of beautiful depth and luminosity. They've created the initial 12 colorways of Imbue from combinations of 20 base colors, ensuring harmonious cohesion across the entire palette for colourwork projects or when pairing separates in your hand knit wardrobe.

GAUGES
Imbue’s plush worsted-spun construction is wonderful for a range of gauges and can be used interchangeably with Shelter and Tones:

  • 4½ - 5 stitches to 1"
  • Suggested Needle: 4.5 - 5.5 mm (US 7 - 9)
  • Suggested Hook: 5.5 - 6.5 mm (US I-9 - K-10½)

CARE
Imbue is a handcrafted product. For best results, we recommend alternating skeins when joining in a new skein for even color distribution.

WET-BLOCKING
Fill a sink or basin with cold water.
Submerge the fabric in water, gently squeezing out any air bubbles so that the piece can remain under water without being held there.
Soak work for 15 minutes, allowing fabric to become completely saturated.
Remove excess moisture by rolling your fabric between clean, dry towels with light pressure. Lay fabric flat and shape to air dry.
