My Experience

Where I got it: Brooklyn Tweed sent me a sample skein.

Needles I used: Hiya Hiya sharps US 4/3.5 mm

Blocked Gauge I got: 21.5 sts/36 rows = 4"/10 cm

My Thoughts:  This fits into the Brooklyn Tweed line much better than I had expected. It's very smooth with excellent stitch definition, but it's also got that pleasantly dry and lofty feel I'm used to with the other BT bases. It was such a pleasure to knit with - it's got just the perfect amount of bounce and softness.

What I might design with it: I already have a sweater quantity in Tincture. I'm thinking something with a bit of knit/purl texture or cables to make that stitch definition shine.

Where you can get some: Brooklyn Tweed's website or your LYS. They've added some stockists recently, so check to see if your favourite shop carries it.
