    Brooklyn Tweed

    Shelter

    $18.25

    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

    Peerie

    $20.00

    Peerie is worsted-spun fingering weight yarn that was built for fine gauge fabrics and colourwork. The extensive palette of 45 painterly colors provides inspiration for projects small and large.

    Brooklyn Tweed 
    sourced pure Merino from Nevada and Utah — their finest fibre yet at 20.5 microns. Fabrics made from Peerie feel soft and supple against the skin.

    The worsted-spun construction aligns the fibers horizontally to create a smooth yarn with just the right amount of twist and a perfect amount of bounce as you work. The 4-ply structure means textured stitches and lace sing as they are worked to create a fabric with excellent drape and stitch definition.

    Skein-dyed in Maine, this yarn launches with 45 colors, about half of which are shared with Brooklyn Tweed's other worsted-spun core yarns, Arbor and Vale.

    YARN SPECS:
    Fingering weight, worsted-spun, 4-ply
    225 yds / 50 grams
    Micron count is 20.5

    ORIGINS:
    Merino wool from Nevada and Utah
    Scoured in South Carolina
    Spun & dyed in Maine

    Brooklyn Tweed

    Loft

    $22.75

    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. Loft has great flexibility of gauge; it can be knit on 2mm (US 0) needles for a dense and durable fabric or on 4mm (US 6) needles for ethereal open work. Two strands of Loft held together can substitute for Shelter in patterns where you’d like greater stitch definition or a marled fabric of two colors.

    Fibre:  100% Wyoming-grown Targhee-Columbia wool
    Gauge:  6 to 8 sts = 1"
    Recommended Needle:  2mm to 3.5mm
    Yardage:  275 yards

    Brooklyn Tweed

    Arbor

    $19.00

    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
