Peerie is Here, Wool People 12, Interchangeable Needle Set Review and Needlepoint Galore!



 



Peerie Has Arrived!

Brooklyn Tweed's new yarn, Peerie has arrived to Wool & Grace!  Peerie brings so much to Brooklyn Tweed's range of yarns.  It's a worsted-spun, fingering weight yarn dyed in a huge array of colors, making it ideal for color-work.  Peerie comes from Merino sheep raised in Nevada and Utah, and is spun and dyed in Maine.  At 20.5 microns, it also happens to be Brooklyn Tweed's softest yarn yet!  We are in love with Peerie, and we know you will be too.  Each skein is 210 yards and $14.  Stop by Wool & Grace to experience it for yourself!

In addition to the arrival of Peerie, Brooklyn Tweed has just released Wool People 12, a gorgeous collection of patterns from an international group of designers.  This beautiful collection focuses heavily on Brooklyn Tweed's lighter weight yarns: Vale, Loft, Peerie and Arbor.  It's chock full of gorgeous lace, and it happens to include a new pattern from designer Stacey Gerbman.  (Stacey's design, Kumon, is pictured below).  Check out this week's blog to read about some of our favorites, then explore the collection for yourself!
