140 yards (128 meters) | 23-24 microns | Approx. 50 grams | Worsted weight

Wyoming-grown Targhee-Columbia wool
Fleece Dyed at G.J. Littlewood & Son, Inc. in Philadelphia, PA.
Woolen Spun at Harrisville Designs in Harrisville, NH.

As a result of its woolen-spun manufacturing process, Shelter is suitable for a wonderful range of gauges:
5 stitches to 1"  |  Suggested Needle: 4½ mm (US 7)
4½ stitches to 1"  |  Suggested Needle: 5 mm (US 8)
4¼ stitches to 1"  |  Suggested Needle: 5½ mm (US 9)

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 halo. We think it’s ideal for knitting sweaters of every variety, winter accessories, and blankets. Like its fingering-weight sibling Loft, Shelter is fleece dyed and blended in 45 heathered colors.

Developed, sourced, processed, spun and dyed 100% 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. Brooklyn Tweed sources this breed for Shelter, Loft, and Quarry; the woolen construction of these yarns further enhance the fleece’s lofty and warmth-trapping characteristics.
