Brooklyn Tweed - Arbor

A true DK yarn.
Four beautiful new colours have just launched this Summer 2018!
Mesa, Arabesque, Norway and Lovat. Beautiful pastels!

Created in collaboration with Jagger Brothers, an historic mill in Maine, worsted-spun Arbor offers a great counterpoint to Brooklyn Tweed's core woolen-spun yarns Shelter and Loft.
Arbor is spun at a DK weight with the aim to create a classic workshorse yarn that is perfect for sweater and accessory knitting. Arbor's fabrics are light enought to wear all year round.
Soft enough for next-to-skin wear, Arbor is spun from pure 23-micron Targhee fleece sourced from flocks in Montana and South Dakota.
A round 3-ply structure creates amazing stitch definition in knitted fabric, making Arbor an excellent choise for cable and texture patterns.
Skein-dyed in Maine by Saco River Dyehouse, Arbor launches with a beautiful palette of 30 colours that include cheerful brights, moody jewels tones and sophisticated neutrals.
Saco River Dyehouse is an organically certified dyeworks in Maine.
The harmonious palette makes Arbor a great yarn for colourwork patterns and stripes too.
