Brooklyn Tweed Quarry
12 - 14 sts = 10 cm on size 6 mm - 8 mm / US 10 - 11
100 g / 183 m
Quarry is a chunky brother to Shelter and Loft. It begins with three strands of the same fleece but rather than twisting the individual plies the strands are nestled together and gently spun. The result is a plump yarn that looks like a single ply and has greater strength and stitch definition than a true unspun yarn.
Quarry has a soft and rustic hand since Brooklyn Tweed never subject their wool to harsh chemical scouring, you’ll find the occasional fleck of vegetable matter that remains as evidence of the sheep’s life on the Wyoming rangeland. The yarn’s one-directional twist may cause it to twirl between the needles and the ball while you’re knitting, but the fabric will be well balanced with no biasing. Quarry knits will bloom to become cohesive and supple after a wet blocking. You shouldn’t notice any change in gauge.
This yarn loves to cable and beautifully renders all kinds of textural stitch work. Despite its soft structure, it can be worked at looser gauges without loss of integrity to the fabric. It is ideal for sweaters, coats, blankets, and cozy accessories.
