Brooklyn Tweed

Shelter
CA$16.95 USD$13.48

The distinctive character of Targhee-Columbia wool shines in Shelter, Brooklyn Tweed’s versatile medium-weight yarn. Shelter is woolen spun, meaning the fibers remain in a lofty jumble that traps air and offers remarkable warmth and lightness. Woolen-spun yarns are more adaptable in gauge, as they can compress to a dense sport weight or bloom to cohere as a gauzy fabric when worked on large needles. Shelter has a dry, soft hand and a faintly rustic nature. Garments knit from Shelter achieve their full beauty after a wet blocking. Shelter is designed to be a workhorse yarn that invites cables, ribbing, textured stitch motifs, open work, plain stockinette and garter stitch. Ideal for sweaters of every variety, winter accessories, and blankets.
