By choosing Brooklyn Tweed yarns, you help to fortify the American fiber industry. From family-owned ranches in the West to historic New England mills, each skein you purchase supports domestic manufacturing jobs, ethical labor standards, and sustainable environmental practices in the United States.

With your help, Brooklyn Tweed does more. We donate 3% of our profit from sales of Dapple yarn to the National Black Farmers Association, supporting agricultural and economic equity for historically disadvantaged Black American farmers. Through our Apart Together initiatives we’ve aided local yarn shops impacted by COVID and assisted local communities in need.

Together, we have the ability to change the world one stitch at a time. We are proud to be part of a community that chooses care and connection at every turn.

Thank you for supporting our work – we couldn’t do this without you.

Working towards a more equitable future is crucial to our values of domestic sourcing, sustainability and antiracism. For more information, see our Equity & Inclusion statement.
