Product description

Please note, this single-batch yarn has Sold Out.

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 Maine Dye & Textiles, an organically certified dyeworks in Maine.


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

  • Care

    We recommend alternating skeins while knitting to distribute the color evenly.

    Wet-Blocking
    1. Fill a sink or basin with cold water.
    2. Submerge the fabric in water, gently squeezing out any air bubbles so that the piece can remain under water without being held there.
    3. Soak work for 15 minutes, allowing fabric to become completely saturated.
    4. Remove excess moisture by rolling your fabric between clean, dry towels with light pressure.
    5. Lay fabric flat and shape to air dry.
