Peerie brings an exciting new range of possibilities to Brooklyn Tweed’s breed-specific core yarn line. Our first worsted-spun, fingering-weight yarn begins with Merino sheep from the western ranges of the United States, specifically Utah and Nevada. Merino sheep are known for their fine and dense fleeces; in fact, Peerie is our softest yarn yet at 20.5 microns.
Worsted-spun in Springvale, Maine at Jagger Brothers, Peerie is smooth, strong, and full of lively bounce. Its 4-ply construction enhances luster and lends a polished hand to cabled or textured fabrics. Peerie also beckons to be worked into open lace motifs or snug stockinette for equally beautiful fabrics destined for daily use or heirloom pieces.
Dyed in Saco, Maine at Maine Dye & Textiles, Peerie’s expansive 45 color palette makes it the perfect colorwork companion. With a range of jewel tones, soft pastels, and warm neutrals, Peerie has a colorway for everyone to enjoy.
Peerie looks gorgeous in the cabled hat Treefolds by Jared Flood. Blending seamlessly with these cable crosses are fully-fashioned double decreases at the crown, which result in a uniquely geometric design at the top of the hat. In fingering-weight Peerie, these anfractuous cables render crisply and remain spritely, substantial, and comfortable to wear on many an adventure.
