Dapple is Brooklyn Tweed’s first departure from wool, a DK weight blend of organic cotton and merino that’s been a hit here at our shop. We’re delighted to report that two new colors just arrived!
Brooklyn Tweed Dapple:
- DK weight
- woolen-spun, tonally dyed
- 60% merino wool, 40% organic cotton
- 165 yards/50 g
- $15.25 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 lots of pattern ideas on our second.
Here’s a new pattern idea for Dapple – Susanna Kaartinen’s “Saurel,” a brioche shawl in 3 colors.
To knit “Saurel” with Dapple, you’ll need 3 skeins of Main Color (MC), 1 skein of Color 1 (C1), and 2 skeins of Color 2 (C2).
I had fun putting together the combinations pictured below, but there are so many more possibilities!
These bundles of 6 are $76.50; the pattern is sold separately for $8.
Order Dapple online for local pickup or USPS Priority Mail Shipping – thanks again for your support and understanding as we remain closed to walk-ins!
