Forbes Ranch 02

Brooklyn Tweed

$9.60 $16.00

Worsted-spun and naturally dyed, Ranch 02 is the second ranch-specific, single-batch yarn from Brooklyn Tweed. Ranch 02 hails from the Forbes Ranch near Kaycee, Wyoming and features a 3-ply worsted spun Rambouillet wool. The sheep from the Forbes Ranch produce a fine micron count of 21, creating a lovely next-to-the-skin softness with a crimp and texture ideal for cable knitting. These worsted weight wools are dyed at the Caledonian Dye Works in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in ten ranch-inspired earth tones. Perfect for accessories and stunning for garments, Ranch 02 is a limited release, so be sure to order enough for your projects in advance!

We made the Nurtured sweater by Andrea Mowry using this lovely yarn!
