Through June 30th, any purchase of one or more skeins of Peerie will ship with a coupon for a free digital copy of Jared Flood’s colorwork hat pattern, Lucerne.

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. 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.

Yarn Specs:

  • 210 yards | 20.5 microns | 50 grams | fingering weight
  • 100% Utah & Nevada grown Merino wool
  • Spun in Springvale, Maine. Dyed in Saco, Maine.
  • 6¼ –8 stitches to 1"  |  Suggested Needle: 2¾-3½ mm (US 2-4)

Fill a sink or basin with cold water and submerge the fabric in water, gently squeezing out any air bubbles so that the piece can remain under water without being held there. Soak work for several minutes, allowing fabric to become completely saturated. Remove excess moisture by rolling your fabric between clean, dry towels with light pressure. Lay fabric flat and shape to air dry.
