Our first foray into intensely local, limited-edition yarns, Plains is a rare gem: a breed-specific, two-ply laceweight wool produced entirely in America. Spun worsted for strength and stitch definition, Plains preserves the crimp and spring of Rambouillet fleece in a slightly rustic yarn with a natural aptitude for openwork. Our partnership with Mountain Meadow Mill in Wyoming allowed us to spin premium Rambouillet wool in the same county where the sheep roam. This eco-friendly, woman-owned and family-run mill gives ranchers a local market for their fine wool and we are proud to have worked with them to create this lovely small-batch addition to the Brooklyn Tweed yarn family. Our focused palette of skein-dyed colors is the work of Saco River Dyehouse, an organically certified dyeworks in Maine.

Since Plains represents a special collaboration on a limited batch, when it’s gone, it’s gone. If you are interested in trying Plains, be sure to snap it up while our stock lasts.

We hope you love working with Plains, and we thank you for treading lightly on our planet and supporting American-made yarns.
