Brooklyn Tweed - VALE

The newest beauty from Brooklyn Tweed: VALE

Brookyn Tweed's worsted-spun breed specific Rambouillet laceweight yarn.

Worsted-spun laceweight Vale offers a lightweight alternative to our DK-weight Arbor, and is a great counterpoint to our core woolen-spun yarns Shelter and Loft.

Vale’s variable gauge is a reflection of its versatility, knitting up beautifully in traditional lace motifs or as feather-light plain stockinette that is wonderfully wearable.
Vale’s worsted-spun construction gives handknit fabrics a refined balance between drape and loft. 

Vale’s 2-ply worsted construction lends strength and crisp definition to lacework, without losing its soft and supple hand.
Vale’s blocked fabric blooms beautifully after a soak while maintaining its delicate drape. 

 

FINE WOOL

Spun from pure 21.5-micron Rambouillet fleece sourced from flocks in Wyoming, Vale is soft enough for next-to-skin wear. 

STRENGTH

Vale is a worsted-spun yarn that is sturdy and strong while maintaining a distinctive bounce and elasticity — a result of the beautiful crimp structure of the pure Rambouillet fleeces used in the spinning process. 

STRUCTURE

Vale’s 2-ply structure provides amazing stitch definition and drape. This yarn was specially developed for superior performance in lace.

SPECTRUM

Skein-dyed in Maine, Vale launches with a nuanced palette of 14 solid colors. Any colours that are not showing here just means that they are 'back-ordered' for now and should be with us in June.
