Peerie is the softest of all the Brooklyn Tweed yarns to date. It is spun from 100% American-bred, merino sheep's wool with a micron count 20.5. That's pretty dang soft! Spun in Maine into a bouncy and glossy four-ply yarn Peerie will add wonderful stitch definition to your knit projects whether you are knitting cables, lace, knit and purl textures or colour-work patterns. The possibilities for Fairisle and Stranded projects are endless with such a broad range of colours! From jewel-tones to pastels to neutrals the colour choices run the gamut with Peerie.
Peerie is not a superwash yarn so all the natural properties of the merino wool shine. Garments will hold their shape beautifully. This lightweight yarn is a perfect choice for fine sweaters, soft enough to be worn next to the skin.
All Brooklyn Tweed yarns are ethically sourced and made entirely in the USA.
