Brooklyn Tweed  We are passionate about wool, knitting and design, manufacturing breed-specific yarns that support domestic textile production right here in the USA.

On this first day of spring, the lively season of growth, we are excited to announce that we will be releasing two new worsted-spun, breed-specific yarns in the next two months. The first will be a limited edition yarn made from wool sourced from a single ranch, and the second will be a special addition to our core yarn offerings. We’ll be dedicating this space to telling you more about the stories behind these yarns, so tune in! If you haven’t already, sign up for our newsletter, too, so you don’t miss our updates — link in profile.

For all of you who are looking forward to welcoming spring with a new wardrobe staple, we present the updated and restyled #BedfordPullover! A comely sweatshirt, Bedford remains effortlessly sophisticated when lounging at home and wears comfortably cozy on an adventurous day out. It’s certainly one to reach for over and over again, especially during the transitional seasons. The updated pattern is now available on our website and Ravelry — link in profile.

Congratulations to @samanthamaylamb on her newest pattern release — the Sophiasburgh Sweater, a cozy, sweatshirt-inspired colorwork pattern that combines top-down round yoke construction and raglan shoulder shaping. Shelter is one of our favorites to work with for quick-knitting colorwork so if you’re curious as well, this is a beautiful pairing to try! #BTintheWild

Lucinda of @monttricot in Canada sent us this lovely photo of her #MélangeScarf in the Willa colorway (Barberry and Thaw), which she happily started knitting during a snowstorm. She said Thaw isn’t living up to its name quite yet so we hope some Vernal sunshine heads her way, and to our other friends up north, soon! #BTintheWild

What a darling hat by @fashionfika, featuring a stitch pattern that definitely looks like the just-one-more-round kind. The #FaunaColorway is also a wonderful choice, popping out vividly against the snowy landscape while simultaneously feeling at home in all its earthy goodness. #BTintheWild

A true sheep to sweater project, @sawkillfarm says the yarn used for this fantastic #AusterPullover was “born, raised, shorn, washed and knit all on [their] farm.” What a heartwarming story behind a garment, especially on a cold, snowy day! #BTintheWild

Have you ever examined the reverse side of a stranded colorwork garment and marveled at the hidden pattern created by the floats? @eritml proudly showcases that oft overlooked wonder with this pullover, which was designed to be reversible. Look at how plump the Arbor floats are! #BTintheWild

Our #GallowayCardigan has been selected for this year’s MDK March Mayhem bracket, in the Yokes category! Voting starts on March 15 — visit @mason.dixon.knitting’s website to learn more about the world’s only bracket for knitters, how to play, and to browse the other patterns in the bracket. #mdkmarchmayhem

It’s a truly rewarding experience to be able to share with you the process and work that go into every skein of our yarns. Shown in this video is how our worsted-spun yarns, Arbor and Vale, are spun and dyed. Head to the Woolen and Worsted Yarn resource page on our website to read more about this process and the unique characteristics of worsted-spun and woolen-spun yarns — link in profile.

Colorblocking meets ombré in the Mélange scarf. Imagined as a knitter’s version of paint-by-numbers, five strands of laceweight Vale are held together in different combinations of light and dark colors to create subtle shifts of tone and value. Play around with Vale’s palette of 14 nuanced shades, or choose from the colorways we’ve assembled for our Mélange handknitting kits, which we named after beloved female authors. Link in profile.

Watching wool spin up into yarn may be just as satisfying and magical as watching yarn grow into fabric. Shown in this clip is how the fiber for a certain color of our woolen-spun yarn family is blended and carded before heading to the spinning frame. Can you tell which color it is? 💛

Watch the full woolen-spun video (and its worsted-spun counterpart) on the Woolen and Worsted Yarns resource page on our website — link in profile.

The latest installment of our Foundations series discusses the differences between how our woolen-spun (Shelter, Loft, and Quarry) and worsted-spun (Arbor and Vale) yarn families are made. As a supplement to this post, we’ve included videos of the milling process for both — view the link in our profile to read more and to watch the videos!
