We are so pleased to be able to bring the beautiful Brooklyn Tweed yarns to New Zealand! We really love the unique texture of this wool and feel it’s quality lends itself perfectly for making long-lasting heirloom hand-knitted pieces.
From the talented BT team: Brooklyn Tweed’s first worsted-spun fingering-weight yarn, Peerie is smooth, strong, and full of lively bounce. Made with USA-grown Merino wool, this yarn’s 4-ply construction lends luster and a polished hand to cables, lace motifs, stockinette and textured fabrics. With a range of jewel tones, soft pastels, and warm neutrals, Peerie’s expansive 45-color palette makes it a perfect colorwork yarn. Developed, sourced, processed, spun and dyed 100% in the USA

MERINO WOOL CHARACTERISTICS: The merino wool we source averages 20.5 microns — within the typical finewool range, and retaining the Merino-specific quirks of supreme density, high tensile strength, high crimp, and delightful springiness. Worsted-spun for a smooth hand, Peerie hits the sweet spot of being both next-to-skin soft and durable (not prone to pilling).
