American Targhee-Columbia wool shines in Shelter, Brooklyn Tweed’s 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 slight halo. It is 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.

Developed, sourced, processed, spun and dyed 100% in the USA. Learn more about Brooklyn Tweed woolen-spun yarns.
