DK Weight Yarn

  • Arbor
    Quick shop

    Brooklyn Tweed



    Arbor is a DK-weight workhorse yarn, spun worsted for superior strength and stitch definition and dyed in a nuanced palette of 30 solid colors.

    Purebred Targhee sheep from Montana and South Dakota lend us their distinctive fleece, a finewool with the softness of merino enhanced by longwool genetics for added durability. Jagger Brothers, an historic mill in southern Maine, spins the fiber into a round and springy 3-ply that loves to cable and shows textural stitchwork to maximum advantage. Saco River Dyehouse, an organically certified dyeworks operating nearby, provides the custom skein-dyed palette with minimal impact on the planet.

    Thanks to its worsted construction, Arbor produces a denser, sturdier fabric than our woolen-spun yarns. The fibers have been combed straight and carefully aligned before spinning, rather than jumbled to trap air. Garments knit from Arbor will weigh more and drape more heavily than those knit from Loft or Shelter.

    Fibre:  100% Montana & South Dakota-grown Targhee wool
    Gauge:  5.25 to 6 stitches = 1" 
    Recommended Needle:  3.75mm to 4.5mm
    Yardage:  145 yards
    Weight:  50 grams | DK weight
    Hand wash, lay flat to dry

  • Lore
    Quick shop

    The Fibre Co.



    Processed in a mill in England’s historical textile region of West Yorkshire, Lore is made of 100% lambswool from the Romney sheep breed also referred to locally as Kent lamb.

    It is a woollen spun DK weight yarn that blooms into a beautiful knitted fabric after washing. Garments made from Lore will wear well and are perfect for everyday and special adventures alike.

    Two years in the making, Lore was inspired by an afternoon the Fibre Co's founder, Daphne, spent taking apart an old sweater that she knitted in the 1980s and reassembling it to suit her style now.

    Throughout the hours spent re-engineering this sweater, Daphne couldn’t help but reflect on the memories knitted into that sweater: the person she bought the yarn for, the reason why she chose to knit something for herself instead and the friend who told her not to knit all those bobbles (she did it anyway!)

    The whole experience was incredibly emotional and nostalgic and led Daphne to create a classic, heathered lambswool yarn that reminded her of the yarn she used for that sweater. She wanted to create something that others could knit their own stories into. Lore is named to honour the stories we create with wool. Great stories happen to those who knit them.

    Lore Launches with a fantastic collection of Patterns. View the Borrowdale Collection here on Ravelry for Project ideas!
