Brooklyn Tweed's Vale is a new laceweight yarn that is born from 100% Wyoming Rambouillet wool, prized for its loft and bounce. A micron count of 21.5 makes
it the finest fleece Brooklyn Tweed has ever offered. They spin this
exceptionally soft and crimpy fiber worsted for a springy, durable
two-ply yarn that yields light & airy accessories.
Scoured and combed into buttery smooth top, the wool is spun
and skein dyed in Maine. Vale is a polished yarn with an even weight and twist, suitable
for heirloom-quality lace projects.
Brooklyn Tweed is passionate about wool, knitting and design. They develop and manufacture breed-specific yarns that support domestic textile production—designing, sourcing, dyeing and spinning their yarns entirely within the USA. Their design team is committed to producing high-quality, sophisticated knitwear patterns for the modern handknitter, especially tailored for the wool yarns they create.
