Quarry is a chunky sibling to Shelter and Loft, inspired by roving-style “unspun” yarns and offered in pillowy 100-gram skeins. Three strands of the same lofty, woolen-spun Targhee-Columbia fleece are gently spun together into a plump yarn that looks like a single ply and has greater tensile strength and stitch definition than a true unspun yarn. Quarry loves to cable and beautifully renders all kinds of textural stitch work. We think it’s ideal for sweaters, coats, blankets, and cozy accessories. Fleece-dyed and blended into an array of heathered colors.
Developed, sourced, processed, spun and dyed in the USA. Learn more about Brooklyn Tweed's woolen-spun yarns.
TARGHEE - COLUMBIA WOOL CHARACTERISTICS The Targhee - Columbia breed combines the softness and elasticity of finewooled Targhee with the robust substance and warmth of mediumwooled 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.
