Brooklyn Tweed Yarn
It's not often that an artist is able to create his or her medium, and that's exactly what Jared Flood has done with his Brooklyn Tweed yarns - Shelter and Loft. He experimented to find the right blend of wool and decided on fiber from Targhee-Columbia sheep from Wyoming. Targhee is known for its softness, while Columbia adds strength and structure.
Jared worked with a mill in New England that's been spinning wool since 1794 to produce a woolen-spun 2-ply yarn. The result is a light and airy yarn for the garments and accessories he wanted to design. And it's completely American made!
Since he began in 2010, Brooklyn Tweed has published a large collection of designs for Shelter and Loft yarns. Click here to see all Brooklyn Tweed's knitting patterns!
