Tones light is the little sister yarn to big sister Tones by Brooklyn Tweed. Both are a bouncy yarns from Wyoming-grown, Columbia sheep's wool. Both are wonderfully warm due to the Woolen-spun structure and both have excellent stitch definition. Both come with a rich selection of colours produced from overdyeing light and dark yarns. Thus, each colour comes in a light and bright form and a smoky and mellow version. All the colours look fantastic together and there are so many wonderful opportunities here for creating exceptional colour palettes.
Brooklyn Tweed is committed to developing breed-specific, American yarns that fortify local supply chains and that support the farmers, dyers, and millers. They have amassed a fantastic and ever growing collection of knitting patterns that are worth investigating.
