We are so happy to have Brooklyn Tweed Shelter in our menu of yarns here at The Knit Café. The Brooklyn Tweed yarns are pretty special. They are made entirely in America from sheep farm to dyer to mill. The wool from the Targhee-Columbia sheep was carefully chosen to produce a yarn with tremendous loft and lightness and excellent stitch definition. Just one look at Brooklyn Tweed's catalogue of patterns shows how this yarn loves cables and other textural stitch patterns.
As the name suggests these yarns are tweeds! Colours are flecked with accent colours that are mouth-wateringly gorgeous and entirely wearable.
