New Brooklyn Tweed Marled Colours

What is “marled” except for a really hard word to say? Does it not make you feel like your mouth is full of marbles or is it just me?

Marled yarns are a melange of more than one colour separated into strands and spun together. If you are familiar with past Brooklyn Tweed Colours like “Newsprint” and “Narwhal” then you are familiar with marled colours. Brooklyn Tweed has just added a few more of these colour hybrids to their gorgeous pallet. Above ↑ check out “Caraway” and” Amaranth”. These two new marls are available in both the Shelter and the Loft yarns from Brooklyn Tweed and good news….

 

…colours “Narwhal” and “Newsprint” are now available in Loft too! Previously they were only available in Shelter.

The Knit Café just received our shipment. You can have a look at all the new stock of Brooklyn Tweed including the new Marled Colours in our webshop

Wool and Honey Love!

There’s a new sweater pattern by Andrea Mowry. It’s called Wool and Honey.

Isn’t it sweet? It’s knit from this gorgeous colour of Brooklyn Tweed Loft called Embers, which just happens to be snuggled in the Knit Cafe shelves right now.

This sweater would be apropos knit with the Hayloft colour too. Check out The Knit Cafe’s supply of Loft by Brooklyn Tweed HERE

New from Brooklyn Tweed and Julie Asselin

julie asselin

Delightful, delicious, delovely yarn from talented indie dyer Julie Asselin has made it to the Knit Café. Just look at these beauties. They look right at home hanging beside the Riverside yarns. Both these yarns are Quebecois, so they speak the same language you see. Both are worsted weights too. The new skeins from Julie Asselin are gorgeous, 100% superwash merino, with a plyed spin.
I will take some close-up glamor shots for you soon, but better yet come and see them for yourself.

julie asselin

Julie Asselin is a Quebecois hand dyer and the beauties above are some of her handiwork. Merletto is the name of the yarn. It is a sumptuous blend: 75% merino, 15% cashmere, 10% silk. There is 740m on a skein. It is a lace weight yarn so perfect for fine knit shawls and other silky, dreamy projects.
We expect to get other treasures from Julie Asselin real soon. Stay tuned!
