Yum! We love these juicy colours of this Brooklyn Tweed yarn! Tones is a round and springy Columbia wool with a three-ply construction. It has wonderful stitch definition, and is light and warm thanks to the woolen-spun structure. Tones is super unique as each colour comes from overdyeing either a light or dark coloured, heathered base resulting in two shades of the same colour. Choose an Overtone version to get something light and bright and the Undertone hue for a darker shade. Of course mixing and matching Overtones and Undertones and colours throughout the range would result in wonderful colour-knitting possibilities.
Tones is made entirely in the USA from sheep to skein, supporting local farms, mills and fibre industries and promoting dignified, work within fields that are traditionally underpaid.
Use Tones for all manner of sweaters with or without textures. It is a perfect choice for hats, and other accessories too! Tones can be used with all Brooklyn Tweed Shelter Patterns and can be mixed with Shelter colours too!
