Brooklyn Tweed



The woolen-spun texture and color depth of Brooklyn Tweed’s Shelter come alive in Rockcress, a classic crewneck pullover designed by Norah Gaughan for Brooklyn Tweed. Simple shaping and timeless construction create a perfect canvas for all-over cables and texture. Worked flat in pieces from the bottom up, then sewn together, Brooklyn Tweed considers Rockcress a level 3 out of 5 in difficulty and offers it as a hard copy only.
