Brooklyn Tweed Arbor (M - Z Colors)
Arbor is a DK-weight workhorse yarn from Brooklyn Tweed. It is worsted spun for superior strength and stitch definition and dyed in a nuanced gorgeous palette.
The yarn is made from purebred Targhee sheep from Montana and South Dakota which gives the wool the softness of merino enhanced by longwool genetics for added durability. Jagger Brothers, a historic mill in southern Maine, spins the fiber into a round and springy 3-ply that loves to cable and shows textural stitchwork to maximum advantage. Maine Dye & Textiles, an organically certified dyeworks operating nearby, provides a custom skein-dyed palette with minimal impact on the planet.
Thanks to its worsted construction, Arbor produces a denser, sturdier fabric than Brooklyn Tweed's woolen-spun yarns. The fibers have been combed straight and carefully aligned before spinning, rather than jumbled to trap air. Garments knit from Arbor will weigh more and drape more heavily than those knit from Loft or Shelter.
