Dapple is Brooklyn Tweed’s DK weight blend of organic cotton and merino, a soft and fluffy yarn that’s been very popular around here. We’re delighted to report that three new colors just arrived!
Brooklyn Tweed Dapple:
- DK weight
- woolen-spun, tonally dyed
- 60% merino wool, 40% organic cotton
- 165 yards/50 g
- $14 each
Dapple is tonally dyed, meaning skeins in the same colorway differ from one another even in the same dye lot. Some are lighter, some are darker, some almost look marled! This isn’t immediately apparent when looking at one skein of Dapple at a time, so I’ve laid out big groups in a few colorways to give a better sense of the variety. You can see each color laid out this way on our first Dapple blog post, and we’re happy to show you all the skeins we have in a given color when you’re here shopping in person.
Lately, Dapple has been popular for Midori Hirose’s “Ranunculus” sweater, Viktoria Chevchuk’s “Burchett” cardigan, Aude Martin’s “Ashfork” vest, and Tamy Gore’s “Graphic Elements,” a colorwork pullover.
