Arbor Description

Arbor is an all-American DK-weight workhorse yarn, spun worsted for superior strength and stitch definition and dyed in a nuanced palette of solid colors.

Purebred Targhee sheep from Montana and South Dakota lend us their distinctive fleece, a fine wool with the softness of merino enhanced by long wool genetics for added durability. Jagger Brothers, an historic mill in southern Maine, spins the fiber into a round and springy 3-ply that loves to cable and shows textural stitchwork to maximum advantage. Saco River Dyehouse, an organically certified dyeworks operating nearby, provides custom skein-dyed palette with minimal impact on the planet.

Thanks to its worsted construction, Arbor produces a denser, sturdier fabric than Brooklyn Tweed's woolen-spun yarns. The fibers have been combed straight and carefully aligned before spinning, rather than jumbled to trap air. Garments knit from Arbor will weigh more and drape more heavily than those knit from Loft or Shelter.
