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
Make head-toppers! Something for the head generally takes less time to make then something for the neck.
