Brooklyn Tweed began as a knitting blog in 2005 by Jared Flood, after his recent move to New York where he started his career in knitwear design. In 2010, the company was officially created bringing Jared’s vision of American-made wool yarns to market.

Brooklyn Tweed is a company that manufactures breed-specific yarns and supports domestic textile production right here in the USA. For example, their worsted-weight Shelter yarn comes from Wyoming Targhee-Columbia sheep, is dyed in Philadelphia and is spun in New Hampshire at Harrisville Designs.

Join nido Tuesday, October 11th from 6-8pm for the launch of Brooklyn Tweed yarns at the shop! To celebrate, we are casting on and kicking off our #ShelteredNidoKAL of Drea Renee Knits’ Sheltered Poncho. KAL’ers will enjoy 15% off materials at nido including both print and digital patterns and yarn. Come to craft night Tuesday’s from 6-8pm to share your poncho progress. The KAL will conclude Tuesday, January 10th at craft night with a group celebration in our ponchos!

All KAL participants will be in the running to receive a free pattern from Andrea Mowry of Drea Renee Knits, just for being apart of the fun. Thanks, Andrea!

See you all next Tuesday for an evening of Brooklyn Tweed fun!
