Brooklyn Tweed’s second edition of their ranch-specific yarn project is here – meet Ranch 02: Forbes!
The home of Ranch 02: Forbes, Forbes Ranch lies near Kaycee, Wyoming in the eastern valleys of the Bighorn Mountains.
Wool from the Forbes Rambouillet flocks traveled to Crescent Woolen Mills in Two Rivers, Wisconsin to be woolen-spun and plied into a worsted-weight yarn with plenty of springy, lightweight softness. After spinning, the yarn journeyed to Caledonian Dye Works in Philadelphia to be dyed in a warm, earthy palette inspired by the rugged landscape of Wyoming’s ranchland.
Ranch 02: Forbes is a testament to connection: connection between the land, the sheep, the ranchers, and the artisans who shepherd the fiber along its supply chain.

Designed for Brooklyn Tweed’s newest ranch-specific yarn, Ranch 02: Forbes, the Tillage Hat showcases the softness and elasticity of American Rambouillet wool.
This hat features the same cable motif as Jared Flood’s Tillage pullover from Brooklyn Tweed’s Fall 19 collection — bold cable panels and plenty of hearty gansey-inspired texture — worked in a thicker worsted-weight gauge for a fast and fun knit.
