Brooklyn Tweed: Arbor
100 % TARGHEE WOOL
Purebred Targhee sheep from Montana and South Dakota lend their distinctive fleece, a finewool with the softness of merino enhanced by longwool genetics for added durability.
Thanks to its worsted construction, Arbor produces a denser, sturdier fabric than the 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.
