Brooklyn Tweed is a high quality, traceable yarn perfect for creating long-lasting garments and heirloom hand-knitted pieces.
American Targhee-Columbia wool shines in Shelter, our versatile 2-ply worsted-weight yarn. Shelter is woolen spun, meaning the fibers remain in a lofty jumble that traps air and offers remarkable warmth and lightness. Once knit, Shelter achieves its full beauty after a wet blocking, as each stitch relaxes and bonds with its neighbors to produce a plush fabric with a halo. We think it’s ideal for knitting sweaters of every variety, winter accessories, and blankets. Like its fingering-weight sibling Loft, Shelter is fleeced-dyed and blended in 45 heathered colors.

TARGHEE-COLUMBIA WOOL CHARACTERISTICS: The Targhee-Columbia breed combines the softness and elasticity of finewool Targhee with the robust substance and warmth of mediumwool Columbia. This versatile mingling of wearability and durability makes Targhee-Columbia suitable for next-to-skin wear, outerwear, or heirloom pieces for the home. We source this breed for Shelter, Loft, and Quarry; the woolen construction of these yarns further enhance the fleece’s lofty and warmth-trapping characteristics.
