Brooklyn Tweed - Ranch 01

Limited Edition naturally dyed yarn from Brooklyn Tweed!

Meet Ranch 01- Brooklyn Tweed's first naturally dyed, breed and ranch specific yarn! 
Brooklyn Tweed have taken their usual emphasis on breed-specific wool a step further by working with Bare Ranch in Surprise Valley, California, a ranch that produces Climate Beneficial Wool in partnership with Fibershed. 

Ranch 01 began with the sourcing of fine Rambouillet fiber at Bare Ranch.  It ends with being dyed by the Green Matters Natural Dye company using natural materials to achieve a palette specially curated by Brooklyn Tweed and inspired by nature. 

At every step along its way, this wool has been treated with special care and attention.   The natural dyeing process results in gorgeous earthy tones with nuanced depth. 

NOTE: Due to the naturally hand-dyed and minimally processed nature of Ranch 01 , some colour transfer to hands and needles is to be expected.  We recommend washing skeins in cool water with a pH neutral rinseless wool wash to keep the natural dyes true to colour. 
It is especially important to keep the indigo dyed colours away from the other ones. You can access a PDF with more detailed information here

To complement the release of their newest , single batch, ranch specific yarn, Brooklyn Tweed have regauged a selection of accessories from Woolens by Jared Flood.  Single patterns are available through Ravelry and Brooklyn Tweed directly.

Note: This is the only stock we will ever have of Ranch 01. We were lucky to be the only European stockist to have some of this special yarn and, even so, we were just able to receive some of the colours. So once it is gone, it is gone! We're sorry for any disappointment.

Please note our prices include 20% VAT so if ordering  online outside the EU this is taken off at check-out.
