  • Lore

    The Fibre Co.

    Lore

    $23.50

    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.

    Brooklyn Tweed

    Ranch 01

    $43.99

    **Due to it's limited nature, this yarn is not eligible for use with discount codes or loyalty points. Please do not apply a discount code to your Ranch 01 purchase as we will have to reverse your order. You will still collect loyalty points on your purchase**

    For this limited edition yarn, Brooklyn tweed took their usual emphasis on breed-specific wool a step further by working with Bare Ranch in Surprise Valley, California, a ranch that produces Climate Beneficial Wool in partnership with Fibershed. Through carbon farm planning and implementation, Bare Ranch is able to enhance the movement of carbon dioxide down from the atmosphere where it can be converted into usable energy by plants and animals and then deposited into the soil. Partnering with the Earth’s natural carbon cycle in a proactive manner improves the overall health of our planet, while generating naturally productive soils that support healthy sheep and the creation of quality wool.

    Ranch 01 began with the sourcing of fine Rambouillet fiber at Bare Ranch. After shearing, the fiber was processed at Chargeurs in South Carolina, spun at Jagger Brothers in Maine, and then sent to Lancaster County, Pennsylvania to be dyed by the Green Matters Natural Dye Company using natural materials to achieve a palette specially curated by Brooklyn Tweed and inspired by nature.

    This multi-disciplinary approach to the production of this yarn supports Brooklyn Tweed's commitment to domestic manufacturing as well as environmental stewardship. At every step along its way, this wool has been created with special care and attention.
