New colors in Brooklyn Tweed Arbor.

Brooklyn Tweed recently released three new shades in Arbor, and we’re happy to have them here at the shop!

Brooklyn Tweed Arbor is a 3-ply DK weight yarn composed of 100% Targhee wool. Like Brooklyn Tweed Vale and Peerie, it’s worsted-spun, and skein-dyed in solid colors.

If these new colors look familiar, it’s because they’re available in other Brooklyn Tweed yarns. Seaglass and Burnished have been popular shades in Peerie, and Spruce is nearly identical to Lodgepole Pine, a popular color in Ranch 02. We’re delighted to see these colors added to the Arbor palette!

Worsted-spun yarns are more durable and dense than their woolen-spun counterparts, and have sharper stitch definition for crisp cables, lace, and texture patterns. Targhee wool spun in this manner has an abundance of one of my favorite yarn characteristics: elasticity. Garments knit with Arbor should wear well and look sharp for years to come.

Come to our shop to plan your next project, and look for Brooklyn Tweed Arbor in our DK weight section!
