Welcome Dapple to the Brooklyn Tweed family! Dapple is a woolen-spun yarn made of 40% Texas-grown organic cotton and 60% merino wool from Colorado.

From BT: "The spring and bounce of plump wool anchors this 2-ply DK weight yarn, providing structure and memory to your knitwear. The cotton's smooth hand softens wool's rustic texture, making Dapple a dream for those knitters who crave a downier feel. Organic cotton slubs shine throughout, creating marled and richly tonal effects within the colors. With saturation ranging from light to dark in hue, each skein is a unique iteration with no dye lots to coordinate, making every project truly one-of-a-kind."

In other words: while the merino is exactly the same in each color, the way the cotton mixes with it is different in each skein. Expect gradation, fade, and marling in each of your projects, or alternate skeins as you knit. 

Fiber content: 60% merino, 40% organic cotton

    Brooklyn Tweed Dapple

    I chose this yarn to use as weft in a pillow I was weaving.
    I used three strands at a time and found that the bits of white cotton added a nice effect. Just what I wanted.
