Brooklyn Tweed Quarry
Quarry is a chunky roving-style “unspun” yarn, offered in pillowy 100-gram skeins. The result is a plump yarn that looks like a single ply and has greater tensile strength and stitch definition than a true unspun yarn. The yarn’s one-directional twist may cause it to twirl between the needles and the ball while you’re knitting, but the fabric will be well balanced with no biasing. Quarry knits will bloom to become cohesive and supple after a wet blocking. You shouldn’t notice any change in gauge. This yarn loves to cable and beautifully renders all kinds of textural stitch work. Despite its soft structure, it can be worked at looser gauges without loss of integrity to the fabric. We think it’s ideal for sweaters, coats, blankets, and cozy accessories.
