Brooklyn Tweed Shelter
If you have a special request, please get in touch so we make sure we get the colour and quantity you need in our next order.
Over the years we've been asked many times if we would stock Brooklyn Tweed. It's been on our yarn bucket list for just as long, and imagine our joy when they approached us to be NZ's BT stockist!
So here it is: Brooklyn Tweed's Shelter. A mix of Targhee and Columbia sheep breeds, BT prides themselves on using local US suppliers and manufacturers to produce their yarns. A woollen spun, soft plied yarn, is does need to be treated gently when knitting but comes together as an incredible fabric with strong stitch definition and immense character. Amazing in colourwork, woollen spun yarns trap more air and so have wonderful bounce and warmth.
