We are so excited to introduce Jared Flood's Brooklyn Tweed yarn at The Tree!


We are thrilled to be Wisconsin's ONLY Brooklyn Tweed flag ship store!

Brooklyn Tweed  has 37 amazing colorways in both Shelter and Loft yarns.
 

Shelter


The distinctive character of Targhee-Columbia wool shines in this versatile medium-weight yarn.
Shelter
is woolen spun, meaning the fibers remain in a lofty jumble that traps air and offers remarkable lightness.
Its two plies are gently twisted to preserve that buoyant quality. 
Woolen-spun yarns are also more adaptable in gauge, as they can compress to a dense sport weight or bloom to cohere as a gauzy fabric when worked on large needles, you’ll find the occasional fleck of vegetable matter that proves this wool is never treated with harsh chemicals. 

Shelter
is designed to be a workhorse yarn that invites cables, ribbing, textured stitch motifs, open work, plain stockinette and garter stitch.
We think it’s ideal for sweaters of every variety, winter accessories, and blankets.


Loft


Fingering-weight Loft channels Targhee-Columbia wool’s airy bounce into feather-light lace, accessories, and garments.

Like Shelter, Loft is a woolen-spun 2-ply yarn with delicate twist, especially designed for unique lightness of hand.
It’s not a sock yarn, so treat it a little more gently when it’s on the winder and the needles.
Once your garment is blocked, the stitches will cohere in a beautifully even and sturdy fabric.
Lace garments should open up to reveal stitch motifs with relatively mild blocking.

Loft has great flexibility of gauge; it can be knit on 2mm (US 0) needles for a dense and durable fabric or on 4mm (US 6) needles for ethereal open work.

Two strands of Loft held together can substitute for Shelter in patterns where you’d like greater stitch definition or a marled fabric of two colors.


Brooklyn Tweed began as a blog for knitters by Jared Flood.
As Jared embarked on a career in knitwear design, he also began to pursue his vision of bringing American-made wool yarns to market.
Brooklyn Tweed's
conviction is to produce American yarns that preserve, support and sustain the tradition of U.S. textile production.

Brooklyn Tweed yarns are born in the shadow of the Bighorn Mountains of north central Wyoming,
where ranchers have raised sheep for 150 years.


Brooklyn Tweed wool comes from Targhee-Columbia sheep, a distinctly American cross of two breeds with their origins in the wide-open spaces of the West. Both are large, sturdy animals able to withstand the harsh winters and terrain of their rangeland homes.



The Targhee produces a fine wool with Merino-like softness; Columbia wool is stouter and lends durability and character. The combination is ideal for the lofty, warm, woolen-spun yarns Brooklyn Tweed set out to create, yarns that are soft enough to wear against the skin but also long wearing and imbued with distinctive personality on the needles.


We love the Brooklyn Tweed and Wool People patterns!




Clean and contemporary!





With an eye for superior craftsmanship and knitterly detail.





Patterns that are both intuitive and enjoyable to work!
