Tones is a versatile worsted weight yarn, woolen spun from American Columbia fleeces, with a round and springy 3-ply construction for stitch definition that shines in textured and cabled knits, creating a delightfully plush fabric with a slight fuzzy halo.
But Brooklyn Tweed didn’t stop there – Tones’ unique colourways offer countless options for creativity.
Starting with a light and a dark heathered base yarn, they use traditional overdye techniques to create pairs of harmonious shades. Choose your favorite colour’s Overtone for a light, bright version of the hue, or its Undertone for a deeper, more subdued variation.
Mix and match Overtones and Undertones in colorwork or stripes for painterly harmony in your fabric. Craft vibrant combinations using Overtones and Undertones of different hues, or go for a more subtle approach by pairing an Overtone and Undertone from the same colorway. We can’t wait to see what you create!
