Spincycle at Spun!
You may have noticed the small, starter supply of Spincycle that arrived a few weeks ago, nicely decorating our Sport and Worsted sections with lots of color. Well, this week brought us enough Dream State and Dyed in the Wool to make our sweater dreams come true. Click below to be inspired!

Tones Light from Brooklyn Tweed
Tones made tiny! This woolen spun 2-ply, sourced in Wyoming and processed entirely in the US, yields soft, sturdy fabric that is well suited for garments and accessories for the whole family. Like the original worsted weight Tones, its unique light and dark shades (the result of light and dark heathered base yarns that are overdyed) present endless options for creativity.
This lighter version of Tones launches with two exciting new patterns, Shadow Stripe Pullover (Julia is knitting one up for the store) and All Ways Hat, plus fresh looks at fingering-weight classics from the BT library.
