Ranch 02 - from Brooklyn Tweed

Limited Edition!

Ranch 02: Forbes is the newest release in BT's line of ranch- and breed-specific wool yarns. This limited edition yarn originated from 100% American Rambouillet sheep on the Forbes Ranch near Kaycee, Wyoming where the Forbes family has lived and ranched for three generations. The Forbes family takes pride in raising healthy sheep with exceptional wool while sustainably managing their pastureland.

Three-ply, worsted-weight and woolen-spun, Ranch 02: Forbes is a testament to connection: connection between the land, the sheep, the ranchers, and the artisan craftspeople who shepherded the fiber along its 100% American supply chain.

Once shorn, the 100% Rambouillet wool traveled to Crescent Woolen Mills in Two Rivers, Wisconsin where it was woolen-spun and plied into a robust, worsted-weight yarn that retains plenty of the fiber's original lightweight and squishy softness.

After spinning, the wool for Ranch 02: Forbes went to Caledonian Dye Works in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to be dyed in a warm, earthy palette evocative of the rugged landscape from which it came.

Since Ranch 02 is a small-batch, limited edition yarn, when it’s gone, it’s gone.
