New colors in Brooklyn Tweed Quarry!

We’re pleased to announce that Brooklyn Tweed Quarry is back in production with a brand new neutral color palette!

Quarry is Brooklyn Tweed’s thickest yarn, a bulky weight, woolen-spun Targhee-Columbia wool with an unexpected combination of texture and structure. It looks like a single ply, but is actually constructed with three loosely-spun plies for a smooth, round yarn.

Brooklyn Tweed Quarry:

  • bulky weight
  • woolen-spun
  • 100% Targhee-Columbia wool
  • 200 yards/100 g
  • $25 each

When Brooklyn Tweed’s long-time dyehouse closed in late 2021, they were left unable to produce the iconic heathered colorways of Shelter, Loft and Quarry. After many months of hard work by the BT team and their new dyehouse partner, Tintoria Piana US, we’re delighted to be able to restock these yarns! Read more about the process behind the scenes on Brooklyn Tweed’s blog post, “The Road To Restock.”

Colors in the left cubby are older stock, and we’re limited to whatever we have on hand, but the colors in the right cubby are current, and we’ll be able to reorder them as they dwindle.

Of all the bulky weight yarns we carry, Quarry may be the best suited to sweater making because of its woolen-spun construction – the fabric it makes is cozy but lightweight, and holds its shape beautifully. Here are some pattern ideas for garments in Quarry!
