New Brooklyn Tweed: Shelter Marls!

Brooklyn Tweed yarns are carefully considered and thoughtfully executed. Whenever they add something new, it’s always exciting. This fall, Shelter has an addition to it’s palette: marls! Three lovely neutrals, narwhal, newsprint and caribou, are now available to add more texture to your Brooklyn Tweed knits.

When we got our advance shipment, the newsprint colorway won my heart in an instant! I cast on for a new Georgetown sweater that night, and I am now working my way through the back. The marl adds depth and interest to this simple stockinette cardigan. It will be perfect for layering on top of tees, tunics and dresses all winter long.

Since one is never enough enough, especially when it comes to Shelter sweaters, I have a few ideas for the narwhal & caribou colors too! At left is Michele Wang’s Bedford, a pullover that would be so cozy in narwahl that you would wear it everyday. In the center is Fort by Jared Flood, a handsome sweater that I would love to see in the caribou color on my fella. On the right is Julie Hoover’s Hudson, which let’s face it would look amazing in any colorway. It looks like I may be headed for an all-marl fall!
