    Brooklyn Tweed

    Shelter

    $16.99

    The distinctive character of Targhee-Columbia wool shines in Shelter, Brooklyn Tweed's 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.

    Shelter has a dry, soft hand and a faintly rustic nature; woolen spinning sometimes results in slightly thinner or thicker sections, and you’ll find the occasional fleck of vegetable matter that proves the wool is never treated with harsh chemicals. Garments knit from Shelter achieve their full beauty after a wet blocking, as each stitch relaxes and bonds with its neighbors to produce an even, light, plush fabric with a halo. You shouldn’t notice any change in gauge.

    Shelter is designed to be a workhorse yarn that invites cables, ribbing, textured stitch motifs, open work, plain stockinette and garter stitch. We think it’s ideal for sweaters of every variety, winter accessories, and blankets.

    Exclusive to the Shelter yarn line are three marled colorways: Newsprint, the combination of Fossil and Cast Iron; Narwhal, the combination of Sweatshirt and Fossil; and Caribou, the combination of Barn Owl and Fossil.

    Fibre:  100% Wyoming-grown Targhee-Columbia wool
    Gauge:  4.25 to 5 sts = 1"
    Recommended Needle:  4.5mm to 5.5mm
    Yardage:  140 yards

    We are proud to present ‘The Croft - Shetland Tweed’ produced from 100% Shetland Island Wool.

    The high levels of crimp and wave in the fleece make it ideal for a hand knitting yarn. The Croft has a soft and silky handle that retains a lot of durability particularly suited to our new tweed collection.

    Crofting is integral to the landscape, cultural heritage and social economy of the Shetland Islands. It bonds people and places in a unique way, preserving livelihoods and age old traditions.

    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.
