I'm so thrilled to have Brooklyn Tweed back as our Official SSKAL Sponsor again this summer! Their yarn and patterns are some of my faves! There is something so special about knitting with the lovely fibres of Brooklyn Tweed. It's magical. I highly recommend this yarn for your SSKAL projects this summer. I couldn't resist sharing some pics of just a bit of my BT stash <3
Shelter (Worsted) and Loft (fingering) (shown below) are both yarns I have knit with and love. Brooklyn Tweed produces American yarns that preserve, support and sustain their belief in the tradition of U.S. textile production.
Brooklyn Tweed yarns are spun in New Hampshire with the fleece of Wyoming-grown Targhee-Columbia sheep. Shelter and Loft are both fleece-dyed to achieve light and lofty yarns boasting 32 rich custom-blended heathers (their new colours are fabulous too!). These yarns give even the simplest fabrics depth and sophistication! They are truly a staple workhorse yarn to add to your stash and great for garment knitting.
If you haven't tried Shelter or Loft before I highly suggest using them for a garment you're looking to knit for this years Summer Sweater Knit Along. They are a joy to work with and will leave you with a treasured garment for years to come. You can see read/see some more about their yarns and our newest favourite patterns of theirs on our Summer Sweater Knit Along Home Page. (Above 2 images © Jared Flood)
