Brunswick, the latest yarn from Jill Draper Makes Stuff, is a bulky-weight blend of 70 percent Corriedale wool and 30 percent mohair that gives even the quickest projects both character and luxury. Like all Jill Draper yarns, Brunswick’s fibers are sourced domestically, and the yarn is made in the USA. Test out Brunswick on a small project like a hat or cowl, and you’ll see what we are so excited about.

We have been knitting long enough to know, for certain, that the present moment is a golden age of yarns. Jill Draper’s yarns are made with an attention to what knitters enjoy, and what makes good garments and accessories, that we couldn’t have dreamed of ten years ago. From the sourcing of the fibers, which Jill selects from farms that she knows, to the spinning of the yarns in mills not far from Jill’s Hudson Valley studio, to her palette selection and hand-dyeing of the yarns–it’s all done with care and impeccable taste. Talking to Jill about yarnmaking, and bringing her yarns to our readers, are among the great satisfactions of running this little shop.
