At Brooklyn Tweed, we're committed to domestic production. Our yarns are made exclusively with fine, breed-specific wool raised here in the USA. And we don't stop there: Our entire supply chain, from scouring to skeining, is located in the United States.

 Making wool yarn in America in 2019 isn't always easy, but to us, it's worth it. Why? One reason is transparency: We want to know that the people and animals who work to create our yarns are respected and compensated for their contribution.

A critical step in that supply chain is Chargeurs Wool USA in Jamestown, South Carolina. The skilled team at Chargeurs combs and scours the wool that is later spun into our worsted-spun yarns. 

We had the privilege to interview Diego Paullier, an American immigrant from Uruguay. He heads the team of skilled technicians and laborers at Chargeurs, some of whom have worked there for decades.

  • Great video, I learned so much and can appreciate the yarns that I love working with. Currently have projects with 2 of these yarns on needles and have the limited addition Arbor waiting in the wings. Thank you for posting this, it would be great to see more of the process to the final product.

  • I used to work there! I was translator and publications manager for several yarn companies (Pingouin, Welcomme and Darlaine) which were subsidiaries of the Groupe Prouvost, which owned the wool combing operation then. Their quality is excellent!

  • What a fantastic video! I’m so fascinated by the process of making wool. So amazing to see it come in as dirty wool right from the sheep to that beautiful white “top”. Please make more videos!
