Arbor in Gale, Tincture, Driftwood, Degas & Hammock

Arbor begins its life as purebred Targhee sheep roaming Montana and South Dakota, before being sent to the historic Jagger Brothers mill in Maine. Here it’s combed to Brooklyn Tweed’s very first worsted spun yarn, and spun into a 3-ply DK weight.

Soft on skin and nice to nature!

Arbor in Potion, Alizarin, Tincture

After spinning, Arbor gets sent about 20 miles up the road to the Saco River Dyehouse, the only organically certified yarn dyeing operation in the United States, where it gets its treatment into 30 harmonious colours, both vibrant and earthy, that are not only stunning on their own, but so lovely next to one another that they make perfect partners in striping projects.

The end result is a strong and beautiful workhorse of a yarn that produces crisp stitch definition and loves cables and texture work. Because of its worsted spun composition, Arbor adds more weight and drape to garments than its woollen spun siblings.

Hirombe Hat, Terra Shawl, Guersey Wrap, High Pines Cowl & Foundry Scarf

Accompanying the release of Arbor is of course a whole host of new accessories patterns, all stunningly textured to show the yarn off to its maximum potential. Come winter we can expect another release of patterns for Arbor, this time in garment designs.
