Brooklyn Tweed Vale

$15.00

Vale is Brooklyn Tweed's springy 2-ply laceweight yarn made from 100% American Rambouillet wool. This naturally soft and bouncy fleece is worsted spun for a durable, elastic yarn with an even thickness and twist, suitable for whisper-light accessories and heirloom-quality lace projects. Vale is skein-dyed in sophisticated shades, sharing a few touchstone colors with our Arbor and Peerie yarns.

Rambouillet sheep produce a finewool that is as soft as its Merino first cousins’, but trades luster for an extra sprinkling of warmth and resilience. Rambouillet fiber is also loftier and bouncier than Merino, and we prepare and spin it worsted for Vale, a soft and springy yarn that yields delicate, feather-light accessories.

Developed, sourced, processed, spun and dyed in the USA.

As with all hand-dyed yarn, we recommend alternating skeins while knitting to distribute the color evenly. Also, please purchase enough to finish your intended project. No two dye lots will match perfectly.

  • Wyoming-grown Rambouillet wool
  • Dyed and spun in Maine
