We’re delighted to introduce you to Brooklyn Tweed‘s newest yarn: Vale!
100% American made from sheep to skein, this laceweight yarn is spun from the softest wool Brooklyn Tweed has sourced to date, then dyed in a tonal palette of 14 nature-inspired colors. The Wyoming-grown Rambouillet fibre has a subtle shimmer and softly springy hand you’re sure to love knitting! The 2-ply worsted-spun construction displays even complex lace stitch patterns at their best.
Create airy heirloom lace with a single strand, or hold doubled for lightweight summer sweaters – combine two colors for beautiful marls!
