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.

  • What a great documentary! Intriguing. Informative. Well done. I just finished a shawl knitted in Vale (now a fave lace-weight) and this video has added to the satisfaction of knitting with your yarn.

  • That was great! I love your mission to educate consumers. I have always enjoyed the way Arbor and Peerie knit up, but now I feel really good, ethically, about my purchase. I can’t wait to show this video series to my high school textiles course. Thank you for a wonderful resource!
