Brooklyn Tweed Tones is a versatile 10ply / worsted weight yarn, woollen spun from American Columbia fleeces with a round and springy 3-ply construction for gorgeous stitch definition that shines in textured and cabled knits. It is quite similar in feel to Brooklyn Tweed's Shelter, with quite a strong, rustic handle while using it.

With the same gauge and meterage, any patterns designed for Shelter will work perfectly in Tones too!

Tones’ unique colourways offer countless options for creativity. Starting with a light and a dark heathered base yarn, traditional overdye techniques are used to create Tone Pairs of harmonious shades. Using the lightly heathered base gives you the Overtone - a  light, bright version of the hue, while the Undertone is created with the dark heathered base for a deeper, more subdued variation. 

Mix and match Overtones and Undertones in colourwork or stripes for a painterly harmony in the finished fabric. Craft vibrant combinations using Overtones and Undertones of different hues or go for a more subtle approach by pairing an Overtone and Undertone from the same colourway. We can’t wait to see what you create!

Tones is woollen spun, meaning the fibres remain in a lofty jumble that traps air and offers remarkable warmth and lightness. Its three plies are gently twisted to preserve that buoyant, springy quality, so Tones is a little more delicate than most commercial yarns.

Woollen-spun yarns are also more adaptable in gauge, as they can compress to a dense 8ply / DK weight or bloom to cohere as a gauzy fabric when worked on large needles. Garments made from Tones achieve their full beauty after a wet blocking, as each stitch relaxes and bonds with its neighbours to produce an even, light, plush fabric with a halo. You shouldn’t notice any change in gauge.
