Brooklyn Tweed is a high quality, traceable yarn perfect for creating long-lasting garments and heirloom hand-knitted pieces.
Tones is a versatile worsted weight, woolen-spun from fleece-dyed American Columbia wool into light and dark shades of round and bouncy 3-ply yarn that we overdye to create a harmonious palette of coordinated “tone pairs”.
Choose your favorite color’s light, bright Overtone, or the deeper, more subdued Undertone. Craft vibrant combinations using Overtones and Undertones of different hues, or choose a more subtle approach by pairing an Overtone and Undertone from the same colorway. Create colorwork, stripes, crisp cables and bold texture in sweaters, accessories, and blankets with this soft and sturdy yarn.

Columbia sheep raised in Wyoming provide the wool for Tones. One of the first sheep breeds developed in the United States, this large, friendly mediumwool breed began in 1912 in Laramie, Wyoming, as a cross between longwool Lincoln rams and finewool Rambouillet ewes. They produce thick white fleeces with robust substance, wonderful for warm and durable sweaters, accessories, and blankets.
