Brooklyn Tweed | TONES :: ODD LOTS
We work hard to stock Brooklyn Tweed yarns in sweater quantities for you, so when we receive a yarn delivery with a new dyelot, we separate out the old and new. There are also some Brooklyn Tweed colorways that are retired or will be retiring soon and those are also listed here.
Our "odd lots" are moved here and discounted while they last in the colors and quantities listed. All sales on odd lots are final.

Tones is a versatile worsted weight yarn, woolen spun from American Columbia fleeces, with a round and springy 3-ply construction for stitch definition that shines in textured and cabled knits, creating a delightfully plush fabric with a slight fuzzy halo.
But we didn’t stop there – Tones’ unique colorways offer countless options for creativity.
Starting with a light and a dark heathered base yarn, we use traditional overdye techniques to create pairs of harmonious shades. Choose your favorite color’s Overtone for a light, bright version of the hue, or its Undertone for a deeper, more subdued variation.
Mix and match Overtones and Undertones in colorwork or stripes for painterly harmony in your fabric. Craft vibrant combinations using Overtones and Undertones of different hues, or go for a more subtle approach by pairing an Overtone and Undertone from the same colorway. We can’t wait to see what you create!
Developed, sourced, processed, spun and dyed 100% in the USA.
