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.
