Arbor is Brooklyn Tweed’s DK-weight workhorse yarn, spun worsted for superior strength and stitch. It’s a round and springy 3-ply that loves to cable and shows textural stitchwork to maximum advantage. Thanks to its worsted construction, Arbor produces a denser, sturdier fabric than BT’s woolen-spun yarns. The fibers have been combed straight and carefully aligned before spinning, rather than jumbled to trap air. Garments knit from Arbor will weigh more and drape more heavily than those knit from Loft or Shelter. Available in a nuanced palette of 30 solid colors.
