Peerie is the polished, worsted-spun sibling to Brooklyn Tweed's rustic, woolen-spun Loft. Peerie sings in both cabled and textured fabrics, and looks lovely knit up in lace, thanks to a 4-ply construction that enhances luster and strength.
Made of Nevada & Utah grown merino milled and dyed in the US, Peerie is 20.5 microns, 4-ply, and worsted-spun.
Boasting an extensive palette, Peerie is an excellent companion to have alongside you when adventuring in colorwork motifs or when showcasing your favorite hue - the choices are abundant.

Perfect for next to skin wear, Peerie is BT's softest yarn yet due to the fine fiber of the Merino sheep. For centuries Merino sheep have been well known for their dense and soft fleeces. From the western ranges we sourced pure Merino fiber, measured at 20.5 microns, that best exemplifies the distinctive fiber qualities of this cherished breed.
The inherent strength of Peerie’s Merino fiber is further complemented by being worsted spun. 4-ply construction invites precise stitch work. Fabrics knit from Peerie are smooth, supple, and can range in gauge to easily accommodate open-work lace motifs as well as firmer stockinette or textured stitch patterns.
BT's largest color palette to date, Peerie’s color selection makes for a vibrant spectrum of possibilities. Colorwork knitting is a dream with a range of hues and values that easily complement one another. Alternatively, pick your favorite shade for a single color project that shows off texture and technique.

Please buy enough for your entire project all at once. We will select skeins from the same dye lot or, if there is no dye lot, skeins that visually match. If you add multiple skeins of the same yarn to your cart you'll be prompted at checkout to select how to proceed if we have concerns about skeins matching.
While colors shown are accurate to the best of our ability, computer monitors and dye lots both vary so the skeins you receive may differ from what is shown.
