Twisted is thrilled to announce we are now a stockist for Brooklyn Tweed! Come enjoy a BT trunk show February 11-26, and join us for a Launch Party and Yarn Tasting on Friday 2/17.
Brooklyn Tweed is a company passionate about wool, knitting and design. They develop and manufacture breed-specific yarns that support domestic textile production—designing, sourcing, dyeing and spinning our yarns within the USA. The Brooklyn Tweed in-house design team is committed to producing high-quality, sophisticated knitwear patterns for the modern handknitter, especially tailored for the wool yarns they create.
Brooklyn Tweed offered its first 100% American-made wool yarn and design collections in 2010. Brooklyn Tweed moved west to Portland, Oregon in 2015, consolidating the headquarters and shipping operations that send unique, breed-specific yarns all around the globe.
Their first yarn, Shelter (worsted weight), was the culmination of founder Jared Flood’s dream to create homegrown yarns that would preserve, support and sustain the tradition of U.S. textile production. Shelter was later joined by Loft (fingering weight) and Quarry (bulky) to create a wide range of woolen-spun knitting options. The addition of Arbor (DK weight) in 2016 brought worsted-spun processing to the line, and Brooklyn Tweed occasionally works with small mills to produce single-batch special releases like Plains (lace weight).
The Brooklyn Tweed in-house design team values clean, contemporary design with an eye for superior craftsmanship and knitterly detail. Their patterns are thoughtfully considered, educational, and enjoyable to work. The aim is to integrate history and tradition with new trends and modern techniques — and to offer superior pattern support to assist knitters in creating garments and accessories they will use and treasure for years. A selection of hard copy Brooklyn Tweed patterns is on the way to Twisted. In the mean time we offer their full range of patterns via Ravelry in-store sales.
